North Dakota Livestock Alliance Created to Support, Enhance and Promote Livestock Agriculture – Searching for Executive Director – Audio

The North Dakota Livestock Alliance is conducting a search for an executive director.
The NDLA was recently created by farmers to help other farmers raise livestock successfully and responsibly in the state. The organization was developed through a collaboration of agricultural organizations that support livestock production and development.
The NDLA is a nonprofit, non-partisan organization that assists farmers, ranchers and communities with the development or expansion of the livestock industry.  The board of directors includes Chairman Craig Jarolimek of the North Dakota Pork Council.  He says, “We want the Alliance to be a trusted resource for North Dakota farm families wanting to remain viable on the land and active in their communities.”

The NDLA will also work to strengthen the connection with consumers to instill confidence in the practices used by livestock owners, which will also help to create awareness in the food and products produced by the livestock industry.
NDLA Secretary Scott German, of the North Dakota Corn Utilization Council, says the successful candidate for the executive director position is expected to have their “boots on the ground.”
