2018 Stockmanship & Stewardship Request for Proposals now available

DENVER – The National Cattlemen’s Beef Association has opened its Stockmanship & Stewardship Request for Proposals for the 2018 Regional Event Series. These one-of-a-kind, educational programs are conducted in partnership with Boehringer Ingelheim Animal Health and the checkoff-funded Beef Quality Assurance program.

NCBA and its partners will entertain proposals for five to six regional S&S events in 2018. Cattle industry organizations including state associations, state beef councils, state/university extension agencies, colleges and universities, industry companies and ranching/farming operations are encouraged to apply.

These two-day cattle handling and educational events are intended to bring together cattle producers from regional/multistate areas, so strong proposals will illustrate collaboration among state affiliates and partner organizations/operations. Grant recipients will receive up to $10,000 to host an S&S event. Additionally, a team of NCBA staff will be dedicated to assist each host with planning, marketing, advertising and execution of the event.
