Nebraska Cattlemen Association members are holding their mid year meeting in Gothenburg Wednesday and Thursday. Association President Jeff Rudolph says their standing policy committees will be meeting. He says those panels have the ability to create policy recommendations to take to the full membership at their state convention later this fall. He says one issue the marketing committee wants to talk about is weight limits and restrictions.
Rudolph says another important discussion will center around the need for further property tax relief. He says there was some positive movement during this year’s state legislative session but more needs to be done.
Rudolph says besides policy discussions, Association members will hear from Dan Hallstrom of the U.S. Meat Export Federation and from National Cattlemen Beef Association’s President Elect Phillip Ellis.
