Clark Price has a commercial cow herd and also operates a small feedyard in Hensler, North Dakota. Price is wrapping up her term as chair of the Federation of State Beef Councils. “A dollar today compared to 1985 (when the Beef Checkoff was created) is about 33 cents so we have to stretch those dollars further,” said Price. “Our cow herd is going down in numbers so there’s less revenue coming in.” In addition to numerous roles in the cattle industry, Price has been in leadership at the state and national level with the corn growers. Why take on that level of involvement? “No one is going to do it for us; I’ve always said if you’re not at the table, you’re going to be on the table.”
