NE (August 4, 2017) - Nebraska Cattlemen staff traveled across
the state for the 4th year in a row en route to eight towns from east to
west during the annual NC road trip. Location stops for staff included
Fremont, Albion, Cairo, Nelson, Oxford, Gothenburg, Anselmo and Alliance.
The NC road trip is
designed as an educational opportunity for members and guests with an
interest in Nebraska's cattle industry. This year, topics included beef
trade to China, updates to the federal electronic logging device (ELD)
mandate, a review of the 2017 legislative session in Nebraska as well as
an update on property tax reform and relief. The road trip also
incorporated a new segment, Affiliate 101, which focused exclusively on
"It was a great
opportunity to catch up on federal regulations and the latest from the
state legislature. I appreciate Nebraska Cattlemen's keeping members
current on upcoming issues and changes facing the cattle industry."
Stated Kelly Terrell, Gothenburg, Nebraska Cattlemen YCC Participant.
