Nebraska Cattlemen To Debate Policy at Convention

Developing policy will be important part of the 2012 Nebraska Cattlemen's Annual Convention. More than 500 cattlemen and women will gather in Kearney December 5th - 7th to establish policy for the upcoming year. Members of the grass roots organization determine the direction and policy of association for the upcoming year.

In the next legislative session there will be a proposal to eliminate the state's inheritance tax. In a weekly interview with the Rural Radio Network, Nebraska Cattlemen Executive Vice President Michael Kelsey is needing input from members to direct the association.

Two of Nebraska Cattlemen's task force groups will present on immigration and on establishing a state beef check off. Both committees will present their findings and will ask members to act on those topics.

This year's convention also features cowboy poet Baxter Black, 2012 National Cattlemen's Beef Association President JD Alexander and Wyatt DeJong, 2010-2011 National FFA Central Region Vice President.

Education is a key aspect of the Annual Convention. The meeting features Cattlemen's College on Wednesday afternoon along with Council and Committee Meetings. Kelsey says this year's meeting will also feature a market outlook. The marketing program is offered free to all convention attendees. Kelsey says this program is designed to help cattle producers chart their business in a profitable manner.
