The term of office for six members and six alternate members on the California Beef Council (Council) expire at the end of this year. Additionally, one mid-term vacancy exists in a member position on the Council. Therefore, the California Department of Food and Agriculture (Department) is requesting nominations for filling these positions from organizations and individuals in the California beef industry. The next three-year term of office will begin on January 1, 2023, and continue through December 31, 2025. The Council conducts advertising, promotion, education, and research activities and is funded by assessments on cattle and calves marketed in California.

The California Beef Council consists of 21 members and their alternates: six of the members represent cattle feeders, six represent range cattle producers, six represent dairy cattle producers, two represent packers, and one represents the general public. All members and alternate members serve three-year terms of office, which are staggered so that one-third of the Council’s positions come up for appointment each year.

Organizations or individuals interested in making nominations must complete a nomination form and return it to the Department’s Marketing Branch for consideration. Nominations must be postmarked or otherwise received by November 3, 2022.
