|Scope & Content||
Certificate of charter membership in the National Cattlemen's Beef Association in the name of Glen and Betty Jo Schmidt.
"Following nearly three years of discussion, planning and compromise, the National Cattlemen's Beef Association (NCBA) was born. In January of 1996, the Beef Industry Council of the Meat Board and the National Cattlemen's Association were merged into one unified organization representing all segments of the beef industry. In addition, joint operating agreements were signed between NCBA and its primary industry partners -- the Beef Promotion and Research Board, the American National CattleWomen and the U.S. Meat Export Federation.
"We've come a long way in one hundred years and yet we still face many challenges," said Max Deets, NCBA president. "Hopefully, as an industry and as an association, we will learn from our past triumphs and failures and use that information to forge a dynamic and profitable beef industry of the Twenty-First Century."
