Title: 2018 Stockmanship & Stewardship Request for Proposals Now Available

DENVER (September 17, 2017) - The National Cattlemen’s Beef Association (NCBA) has opened its Stockmanship & Stewardship (S&S) Request for Proposals (RFP) for the 2018 Regional Event Series. These one-of-a-kind, educational programs are conducted in partnership with Boehringer Ingelheim Animal Health (BI) and the checkoff-funded Beef Quality Assurance (BQA) program.

NCBA and its partners will entertain proposals for five to six regional S&S events in 2018. Cattle industry organizations including state associations, state beef councils, state/university extension agencies, colleges and universities, industry companies and ranching/farming operations are encouraged to apply.

These two-day cattle handling and educational events are intended to bring together cattle producers from regional/multistate areas, so strong proposals will illustrate collaboration among state affiliates and partner organizations/operations. Grant recipients will receive up to $10,000 to host an S&S event. Additionally, a team of NCBA staff will be dedicated to assist each host with planning, marketing, advertising and execution of the event.

For more details and the RFP, please visit Applications must be submitted by November 1, 2017.
