Sec. Perdue Names ALB Appointees
Agriculture Secretary Sonny Perdue announced the appointment of five members to serve on the American Lamb Board. The members appointed to serve three-year terms are:
• Sally J. Scholle, Producer, Littlestown, Pa.
• David Quam, Producer, San Angelo, Texas
• Peter J. Camino, Feeder, Buffalo, Wyo.
• Elizabeth A.W. Dressler, First Handler, Parker, Colo.
• Greg Deakin, Seedstock Producer, Cuba, Ill.
“These appointees represent a cross section of the lamb industry with great experience in the industry and I know they will help us better meet the needs of our American farmers, ranchers and producers,” said Perdue.
The American Lamb Board is composed of 13 members including six American producers, three feeders, three first handlers and one seedstock producer. The board is authorized by the Commodity Promotion, Research and Information Act of 1996. Since 1966, Congress has authorized the establishment of 22 industry-funded research and promotion boards. They empower farmers and ranchers to leverage their own resources to develop new markets, strengthen existing markets and conduct important research and promotion activities. The U.S. Department of Agriculture’s Agricultural Marketing Service provides oversight, paid for by industry assessments, which ensures fiscal accountability and program integrity for participating stakeholders.
