Wyoming Beef Council to meet on Dec. 6 in Casper

CHEYENNE, WYO - The Wyoming Beef Council (WBC) will meet in the Senate Room at the Parkway Plaza in Casper on Tuesday, December 6.   

Beef producers are encouraged to attend the meeting, which starts at 10 a.m. At the meeting, Jon Kirkbride, Wyoming's director to the U.S. Meat Export Federation, will give a report and members will also participate in a presentation on the use of social media in beef promotion. The agenda is available to download as a PDF on the producers' section of www.wybeef.com.  

The WBC, a five-member board of beef producers, works on behalf of the cattle growers of Wyoming to increase demand for beef through promotion, education, and research. WBC programs are funded by the $1-per-head beef checkoff collected on all Wyoming cattle when they are sold. Fifty cents of every checkoff dollar collected is sent to the Cattlemen's Beef Board which oversees checkoff programs. The remaining 50 cents is used at the discretion of the members of the WBC for state, national or international programs.

For more information please contact the WBC at 307-777-7396 or P.O. Box 1243, Cheyenne, WY 82003. For more information on beef checkoff funded activities in Wyoming visit www.wybeef.com.
