State group holds young cattlemen’s recruiting event

Staff report

The Nevada Cattlemen's Association recently held a Christmas social for young cattlemen interested in membership and participation in NCA's mission to promote, preserve and protect a dynamic and profitable Nevada beef industry.

"We need membership of all ages but are actively seeking younger individuals," said Ron Torell, president of NCA. "Our present membership is aging while fewer young people are entering the industry willing to take on the many political issues that affect our lifestyle.

"We are seeking out those potential members between the ages of 18 and 40 who are actively involved in the production of beef cattle. The beef industry needs your membership and participation in the political activities of NCA."

If individuals are interested in becoming a dues paying member of NCA and would like to be included in future NCA membership recruitment activities, contact the NCA office at 775-738-9214 or nca@nevadabeef.org.

The Nevada Cattlemen's Association is a nonprofit trade association that was established in 1935. NCA provides a means for Nevada's cattle industry to present a united front on issues that impact us all. Its mission is to promote a dynamic and profitable Nevada beef industry which represents the interests of its producers and consistently meets the consumer's needs while increasing Nevada's market share.

Torell said NCA works hard to protect private property, vested water and grazing rights. NCA achieves this through increased public awareness of our industry, and agriculture in general. The Association feels strongly that the future of rural Nevada depends on healthy viable land produced by Nevada ranchers.
