The Nebraska Cattlemen staff is hitting the road again this summer for an educational road trip. These educational meetings are for Nebraska Cattlemen paid members. NC staff will be discussing various industry issues at each of the six stops across Nebraska July 20-23. Scheduled stops are at Bridgeport, Thedford, Lexington, Deshler, York and West Point.
Topics to fuel your mind include an update on this year’s legislative session; hear what happened in Lincoln earlier this year that affects cattlemen.
Since the Nebraska Cattlemen is a grassroots organization, staff will be discussing how policy is written, and why it is important for members to be engaged in the development of policy.
Also, how much do you know about brand law and regulations? NC will provide members with a refresher course on how brand law works in and out of the brand inspection areas. Staff members will also share some legislation brand issues for next year.
