American Lamb Board Nominations Now Open

The USDA’s Agricultural Marketing Service is seeking nominations for the American Lamb Board. Four of the current members’ terms expire in February 2023. Positions to fill include one producer with 100 or fewer lambs, one with more than 500 lambs, one feeder-at-large, and one first handler. The deadline for nominations is June 9, 2022. “Serving on the ALB is an excellent way to represent the sheep industry,” says ALM Chair Peter Camino. “The next round of board appointees will shape the next several years of building demand for American lamb, especially as we work towards updating our long-range plan.” Any U.S. producer, feeder, or first handler who owns or purchases lambs may get considered for nomination to the 13-member American Lamb Board. Members will serve three-year terms beginning in February of next year and are allowed to serve two consecutive three-year terms. More information and application forms are available at ams.usda.gov.
