Holterman Appointed to U.S. Cattlemen's Beef Board
Wisconsin Ag Connection - 11/25/2019
Wisconsin will have a new representative on the Cattlemen's Beef Promotion and Research Board. Last week, the USDA appointed 40 new members to the group, which includes Daphne Holterman of Watertown.
Holerman and her husband, Lloyd, own and operate a 900-cow dairy farm in Dodge County. She is a former recipient of World Dairy Expo's Woman of the Year award, and the couple has earned the Holstein Association Progressive Genetics award and are former winners of the Wisconsin Outstanding Young Farmer award.
She replaces Lloyd DeRuyter from Cedar Grove, who's term in expiring. Other Wisconsin producers on the board include Bob Mitchell of Wauzeka and Terry Quam from Lodi.
The goal of the program is to maintain and expand domestic and foreign markets and uses for beef and beef products. It's funded by a mandatory assessment of $1 per head collected each time cattle are sold.
