The Integrity Beef Alliance

The Integrity Beef Alliance simplifies cow/calf producer management decisions and increase the marketability of calves through the production of high quality, uniform, and Age and Source verified preconditioned cattle.

Mission

To simplify cow/calf producer management decisions and increase the marketability of calves through the production of high quality, uniform, and Age and Source verified preconditioned cattle.

Vision

To be nationally recognized as a reliable source of well managed, high quality, value-stacked*, uniform, and age and source verified preconditioned cattle.

Organizational Structure

The Integrity Beef Alliance is led by an Executive Director and a Board of Directors, comprised of eight (8) Integrity Beef Alliance producer representatives. The Board equally represents four regions of the Integrity Beef Alliance program area. The Executive Director and Board of Directors are advised by participating Integrity Beef Alliance producers and Noble Foundation Agricultural Division managers and consultants.

Membership

Membership into the Integrity Beef Alliance begins with an invitation from the Noble Foundation agricultural consultants. Consultants identify potential producers actively enrolled with the Noble Foundation Ag Division's consultation program that could potentially benefit from participating in the Integrity Beef program. Nominations from Alliance members can also be proposed to Integrity Beef Alliance board, but participation in the NF consultation program will preclude membership into Alliance. Final producer membership decisions rest with the Executive Director and Board of Directors. To inquire about membership, contact the Executive Director or the Noble Foundation Consultation Program Manager.

The Noble Foundation annually hosts two all-producer meetings (summer and winter) to inform producer members of Integrity Beef Alliance activities and program developments. Additional meetings are occasionally hosted at the ranches of producer members; organized on a volunteer basis for educational and recruitment purposes.
