Three Appointed to Sheep Center
Agriculture Secretary Sonny Perdue announced the appointment of three members to serve on the National Sheep Industry Improvement Center Board of Directors. The appointed producers and marketing expert who will serve three-year terms are:
• Jeremy Geske, Producer, New Prague, Minn.
• Brenda J. Reau, Producer, Petersburg, Mich.
• Steve W. Lewis, Marketing, Artesia, N.M.
“The Sheep Center was established to improve the competitiveness of the U.S. sheep industry and these appointees bring experience that will serve this agricultural sector well,” said Perdue.
The board is composed of seven voting members and two non-voting members. Voting members of the board include four members who are active producers of sheep in the United States, two members that have expertise in finance and management, and one member that has expertise in lamb, wool, or lamb product marketing. Non-voting members of the board include the U.S. Department of Agriculture’s Under Secretaries for Marketing and Regulatory Programs and Research, Education and Economics. USDA’s Agricultural Marketing Service provides oversight of the center.
