The California Department of Food and Agriculture needs a beef cattle producer for its Livestock Identification Advisory Board.

The board’s primary focus is making recommendations to the department on livestock laws, regulations and budget.

The Bureau of Livestock Identification registers and inspects cattle operations in the state. Cattle registration thwarts livestock theft, loss and misappropriation.

According to a CDFA news release, the board is currently made up of two beef cattle producers, two dairy producers, two feedlot operators and a livestock marketer. There is an opening for another beef cattle producer.
