The National Cattlemen’s Beef Association wrapped up its virtual Winter Business Meeting by electing Kansas cattle producer Jerry Bohn as its new president.
Bohn is a retired Lieutenant Colonel in the U.S. Army Reserve. His early days included custom grazing cattle with his family in Flint Hills, Kansas, before moving on to Kansas State University. Bohn also served 34 years as the manager of a commercial cattle feeding operation called Pratt Feeders. “As I look forward to this year as NCBA President, I have immense pride in the cattle industry and our dues-paying members that help to make this the leading cattle organization representing U.S. producers,” Bohn says.
“Becoming president is my greatest honor and an opportunity to give back to the industry that made me who I am today.” Don Schiefelbein of Minnesota was named president-elect, and Todd Wilkinson of South Dakota was elected vice president. “The grassroots power of our members and state affiliates is the reason I’m proud to represent the NCBA as President and is the reason I get up every day, ready to fight for the American producer,” Bohn adds.
