A Cattle Feeders Hall of Fame (CFHF) has been established to honor the visionary men and women who have made lasting contributions to the cattle-feeding industry. CFHF is designed to celebrate the rich traditions of the cattle-feeding industry and recognize individuals who devoted their careers to preserving its mission and improving production practices.

A five-person nominating committee will develop a ballot of CFHF nominees that will be distributed next week to the industry. Once ballots have been submitted and counted, the top two vote getters will be announced in May.

In the short-term, a virtual CFHF museum is being created to house the history of the U.S. cattle-feeding industry and recognize the entrepreneurs and visionaries who contributed to its success.

The nominating committee includes: Richard McDonald, former Texas Cattle Feeders Association CEO; Del Miles, veterinarian and industry consultant; Terry Stokes, National Cattleman’s Beef Association former CEO; Topper Thorpe, former Cattle-Fax CEO; and Betty Jo Gigot, CALF News.
