Cattlemen’s Beef Board elects new officers
The Cattlemen’s Beef Promotion & Research Board has elected its 2021 officer team. Cattle producers Hugh Sanburg of Colorado, Norman Voyles, Jr. of Indiana, and Jimmy Taylor of Oklahoma will guide the national Beef Checkoff throughout 2021.
Sanburg says he’s optimistic about 2021 and will do his best to advance the beef industry, make informed decisions, and encourage Checkoff contractors to execute programs and initiatives that accomplish the primary goal of driving demand for beef. Sanburg, along with his brother, operates a primarily horned Hereford cow-calf operation and a Registered Hereford operation.
Vice-chair Norman Voyles owns and operates a seventh-generation grain and livestock farm near Martinsville, Indiana.
Secretary-Treasurer Jimmy Taylor and his wife Tracy run a commercial Angus herd near Cheyenne, Oklahoma. He’s a past recipient of the Certified Angus Beef Commitment to Excellence Award and the 2013 Oklahoma Angus Association Commercial Breeder of the Year.
Greg Hanes, CEO of the Cattlemen’s Beef Board says the members of the officer team fully understand the beef industry’s current challenges and he’s certain they will use their knowledge and expertise to help the CBB and the Beef Checkoff reach new levels of success this year.
Sanburg, Voyles, and Taylor were elected during the virtual 2021 Winter Meetings.
