Wyoming Beef Council to meet on April 12-13 in Riverton

CHEYENNE, WYO -  The Wyoming Beef Council (WBC) will review the proposed FY2019 budget, marketing plan and funding proposals at a meeting being held in Riverton April 12-13.

Beef producers are encouraged to attend the meeting, which begins at 1 p.m. on April 12 and will adjourn by 10:30 a.m. April 13 at the Holiday Inn Convention Center in Riverton. 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.

The mission of the Wyoming Beef Council is to increase beef demand domestically and internationally for the benefit of Wyoming farmers and ranchers. For more information on beef checkoff funded activities in Wyoming, visit www.wybeef.com.
