Administrative Assistant

         

The Idaho Beef Council is seeking an experienced, outgoing and energetic person to be our new Administrative Assistant.  Person will be responsible for a wide range of administrative and operational responsibilities that help facilitate the smooth running of our organization.

The Idaho Beef Council is a state agency which operates to provide education about beef and increase the consumer demand for beef. As one of the leading agricultural industries in Idaho, the cattle business touches many Idahoans every day - from the ranchers to the processors and plant workers, to delivery truck drivers to restaurant operators and supermarket managers. In the end, it benefits the people who eat it by providing safe, wholesome and nutritious products that fuel our bodies.

There are over 9,700 cattle operations in Idaho. Cattle and calves ranked second only to milk in 2012 for all Idaho agricultural commodities in terms of cash receipts.

Cattle are raised in every Idaho county, with the largest production in the southern part of the state. Small independently owned operations are still the backbone of the Idaho cattle industry. Despite the large holdings of corporate operations headquartered in Idaho such as Simplot and Agri-Beef, most Idaho cattle are raised and fed on privately owned ranches and feedlots.
