NCBA’S Cattlemen to Cattlemen Debuts Tenth Television Season from San Diego
DENVER, COLO. (JANUARY 22, 2016) – The spring 2016 season of NCBA’s Cattlemen to Cattlemen will kick off from San Diego, Calif. on Tuesday, January 26 at 8:30 p.m. EST on RFD-TV. This special event show will give viewers an exclusive, inside look at the Cattle Industry Convention and NCBA Trade Show and also have an industry update from Philip Ellis, NCBA President and Wyoming rancher.
“Cattlemen to Cattlemen is one of the best ways our association can connect with farmers and ranchers today,” said Marvin Kokes, Senior Vice President of Industry and Member Services, NCBA. “We are very proud of the value this quality television show brings to the entire beef industry.”
This year NCBA’s Cattlemen to Cattlemen celebrates ten years of premium television content designed specifically for beef producers across the country. The show debuted in February of 2007, and was created by cattlemen for cattlemen to deliver industry news, producer education, policy updates from Washington, D.C. and more. NCBA started the show on RFD-TV as a 30 minute, weekly show. Since then the show has successfully evolved into 60 minutes each week, with debut episodes on Tuesdays at 8:30 p.m. EST and re-airs on Wednesdays at 12:30 a.m. and Saturdays at 9:00 a.m.
“This television show truly offers unique topics, educational value that producers can use, production quality and variety,” said Kokes. “We work every day to tell the story of America’s beef producer and to give them information to help them be more successful.”
In the fall of 2016, NCBA's Cattlemen to Cattlemen will reach another milestone - airing its 500th weekly episode. Other special highlight shows for this season include an NCBA membership benefit show, a Washington, D.C. policy and election overview show, market updates, new producer profiles, features on the latest in ranch and farm equipment, plus land stewardship and livestock handling tips.
