The Vermont Beef Producers Association (VBPA) is a service based non-profit organization that strives to be the foundation of a profitable and sustainable beef industry in Vermont. Founded in 1981, the association works to advance members’ economic and legislative interests.
The VBPA Board of Directors is responsible for, and accountable to, the association’s membership on all things beef related. This board consists of 11 voting directors from across the state and one director from NH. VBPA represents the interests of cattlemen and women throughout Vermont on producer education, consumer awareness, and product promotion. There are also additional ex-officio board members from universities in Vermont.
The Vermont cattle industry thrives on multi-generational family farms and also relatively new comers to Vermont who have added hybrid vigor to our industry while assimilating themselves into the agricultural landscape of Vermont. The farmers and cattle producers of the Vermont Beef Producers Association serve as stewards of the livestock, land, and environment entrusted to them. The VBPA is a network of passionate people working together to produce high quality beef.
