Two producers and one marketing expert will serve three-year terms.

Three people have been appointed to serve on the National Sheep Industry Improvement Center Board of Directors.

“The Sheep Center was established to improve the competitiveness of the U.S. sheep industry and these appointees bring experience that will serve this agricultural sector well,” said Agriculture Secretary Sonny Perdue.

The board is composed of seven voting members and two non-voting members. Voting members of the board include four members who are active producers of sheep in the United States, two members that have expertise in finance and management, and one member that has expertise in lamb, wool, or lamb product marketing. Non-voting members of the board include the USDA’s Under Secretaries for Marketing and Regulatory Programs and Research, Education, and Economics.
