CBB & ANCW Events


The Cattlemen’s Beef Promotion and Research Board

The Cattlemen’s Beef Promotion and Research Board (CBB) administers the national Beef Checkoff Program, subject to USDA approval and in coordination with the Federation of State Beef Councils and Qualified State Beef Councils

During the 2015 winter meeting, Beef Board members will review and evaluate the progress of current checkoff-funded promotion, education, research and information programs aimed at maintaining strong consumer acceptance of, and preference for beef and beef products. Checkoff committees also will begin setting goals for checkoff programs in FY 2016, which begins October 1, 2015.

Beef Board members will elect 2015 officers, including chairman, vice chairman and secretary/treasurer, as well as members of the Beef Board Executive Committee and the Beef Promotion Operating Committee for the coming year.

The Beef Board welcomes all producers and importers who pay the checkoff to attend CBB and joint checkoff committee meetings at no cost, to observe and participate in the decision-making process for their beef checkoff.

 American National CattleWomen, Inc. (ANCW)

An American National CattleWoman is a strong, enthusiastic woman, willing to stand up for what she believes in. She is equally at home on a ranch, in a meeting, at a social function, or a legislative venue. She is not necessarily a farm or ranch woman, but she is someone who strongly supports the cattle industry and America's agricultural heritage through education and promotion.
