Cow-calf producer from central North Dakota effort says the check off has always been about the grassroots producers.

Involvement is the key word this convention is a prime example of that and I’m extraordinarily proud of my role with the federation in terms of reaching out and involving individual producers when they have the opportunity to come to a convention like is they actually get to sit down and be involved in the process and it doesn’t matter if you’re from Texas a year from North Dakota or Michigan. We respect and that involvement is the key to our success .

And the final word efforts wants to leave as he steps down from federation leadership is that those who are stepping up to lead the effort are keeping their eyes on the ball we increased angle.

Little over $1 billion and and you know it , they were down and at times basis 3rd their dollars was actually pretty steady Canada unconnected $792 million they were actually down 1% in terms of value and in those high growth areas of South Korea . There are up 30% on a value basis and South America 58% on a value basis comin then rounding out the top 5 .
