NCBA's Ryan Goodman Visits OK to Train Producers in Effective Beef Advocacy and Messaging

Fri, 11 Jan 2019 10:26:40 CST

NCBA's Ryan Goodman Visits OK to Train Producers in Effective Beef Advocacy and Messaging Ryan Goodman is director of grassroots advocacy and spokesperson development for the National Cattlemen’s Beef Association. He travels the country to work with cattle producers and teach them how to be effective advocates for the beef industry. During a visit to Oklahoma City this week, he spoke with Radio Oklahoma Ag Network Farm Director Ron Hays about his work.


“One of my big roles is to help with our conversational skills so that we can share our stories in a way that is going to resonate with audiences and help consumers understand how cattle are raised and how beef gets from pasture to plate,” Goodman said, explaining all the preparation and hard work that goes into developing those kinds of skills. “So, helping them to understand some tactical skills and how to share information in order to be successful in having productive conversations.”


According to Goodman, consumers are more engaged than ever before in seeking information about their food - how and where it is produced. Goodman says NCBA does a great job at monitoring these kinds of conversations and the questions and concerns that have been expressed by consumers. Essentially, he explains that the many topics being discussed currently by consumers all fall into four buckets: beef safety, animal welfare, beef nutrition and sustainability. Of course, the issue of sustainability is one that most people have become quite familiar with in recent years - as it has become one of the most popular buzz words out there. With so much focus on this particular area of food production by consumers, Goodman says it is imperative that producers understand the concept and are able to communicate how their own operation is sustainable - in order to be a good advocate for the beef industry.


“That’s definitely something we’re helping producers with through the ‘Master’s of Beef Advocacy’ (MBA) program and helping them be confident in speaking to what it is they do on their farm or ranch every day to be more sustainable,” he said. “There is a lot of noise out there that consumers are hearing about sustainability and so we’re trying to help producers join those conversations.”


Listen to Goodman and Hays speak about how NCBA is working to train average cattle producers to be extraordinary beef advocates, on today’s Beef Buzz.
