National Cattlemen Kicking Off Membership Drive
Wisconsin Ag Connection - 03/08/2013

The nation's oldest and largest organization representing the cattle industry is hosting its 'Membership Madness' drive during the month of March. Leaders of the National Cattlemens Beef Association say their group has a strong presence across the country and ensures the forceful, unified voice of Americas beef producers is heard.

Initiated in 1982, the Top Hand Club is NCBAs member-recruit-a-member program that recognizes volunteer leaders for their commitment in growing a strong national association. To become a Top Hand Club member, individuals must recruit at least three new NCBA members. To remain in the club, members must recruit two new members each subsequent year.

NCBA President Scott George, a dairy and beef producer from Cody, Wyoming., said its important for NCBA members to urge cattle producers to join the organization, which is producer-owned and member driven.

"Now more than ever, the livestock industry is under fire from groups such as radical animal rights activists who are working to undermine advances in animal agriculture as they push their extremist agendas, and cattle producers continue to face government uncertainty and overreaching federal regulations," George said. "Even though we already have a strong membership base, we can become even stronger and continue to fight for the sustainability and longevity of the beef industry."

During the March Membership Madness drive, NCBA members are encouraged to recruit at least three new organization members through the end of the month. Those who meet the challenge will become a Top Hand Club member and receive a Top Hand Club hat and glove set. The top recruiter during the month of March will also receive a Roper leather jacket.
