Texan Elected Vice President of National Cattlemen’s Beef Association

As the No.1 cattle-producing state in the nation, it’s only fitting that Texas would be home to the new vice president of the National Cattlemen’s Beef Association (NCBA).

Bob McCan, a lifelong cattleman and past president of the Texas and Southwestern Cattle Raisers Association (TSCRA), was recently elected to his new post at the annual NCBA meeting in Nashville, Tenn. A graduate of Texas A&M University, McCan is a former TSCRA director and a longtime ranch manager who oversees cattle operations in Victoria, Refugio and Bee counties.

McCan’s cattle industry expertise will be a tremendous asset to Texas and U.S. beef producers as they continue to feed our domestic population while also expanding to global markets. He also is uniquely qualified to lead the NCBA’s 230,000 total members as they continue their mission of advancing the economic, political and social interests of the U.S. cattle business.

Congratulations, Bob. Your well-deserved achievement and record of leadership success will have a profound impact on the Texas economy, food-safety standards and the beef industry here and abroad.
