Economist: Taste feeds growing demand for beef

A cow herd is tended on the Apache-Sitgreaves National Forest in Arizona on July 12, 2009. University of Missouri economist Scott Brown says demand is important to maintain beef prices during times of high supply. “Taste matters. Consumers found that in beef."

The Arizona Cattle Growers’ Association (ACGA) is searching for an executive director.

The organization is looking for a director with a background in agriculture, with agricultural trade organization experience desired, and government relations, but will also consider other experience.

The executive director is the association’s key staff person and represents all members and employees. Position duties include planning, directing and coordinating all activities of ACGA; preparing an annual budget; communicating with individuals and parties to promote and protect the beef industry; managing the office day-to-day; and overseeing all operations.

Applicants must submit a cover letter, resume and three references to form.jotform.com/92587156358167, or by mail to Billy Elkins, C/O ACGA, 1811 S. Alma School Rd., Ste. 255, Mesa, AZ 85210. Applications are due by June 4.
