NCBA raises it's membership dues....again.

Post by True Grit Farms » Tue Mar 20, 2018 12:40 pm

I hate to be a freeloader and not support BEEF, but I'm out. I haven't been happy with the NCBA support of COOL and backing imports of beef from Brazil. Dues only went up to $150.00 a year but I see no reason for the increase. We do Farm Days at 5 or 6 schools every spring a give pencils and coloring books to all the kids, and beef cook books to all the teachers. This year we can only give pencils or coloring books and not both? Where's our $2.00 per head beef checkoff dollars going?

What the real kicker is $.50 out of the beef checkoff dollars can only go to education and promotion of beef products.
I've noticed how the NCBA is promoting how to cook lean beef. Mexican beef us lean beef, I wonder if I'm over thinking things? I'll know a little more about what's happening after Friday.

I support like what R-Calf does better. Have seen too many times in this area where the NCBA didn't represent what those paying most of the check off dollars wanted. I feel they have followed the wrong road for sometime.
