LINCOLN, 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 membership.
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.
