The Nevada Cattlemen’s Association (NCA) recently hired Kaley Sproul, a Logandale native, as their new Executive Director. Kaley is a well-qualified addition to our association having recently graduated from Great Basin College with an Associate of Arts degree in agriculture and is in the process of finishing her Bachelor of Arts degree in secondary education for agriculture.  She has been involved in the promotion and sustainability of the livestock industry throughout her life. Kaley most recently worked at the University of Nevada Cooperative Extension in the Mineral County office coordinating with the statewide “Herds and Harvest” and “Beginning Farmers and Ranchers” programs.  “NCA extends a warm welcome to Kaley as we look forward to having her as our new NCA Executive Director,” states Ron Torell, President of Nevada Cattlemen’s Association.  Kaley will begin her work assignment with NCA on July 20, 2015.

Originating in 1935 as the sounding voice for Nevada’s livestock industry, NCA, a dues paying non-profit membership organization, had the same goals and mission then as it does today: “To promote, preserve and protect a dynamic and profitable Nevada beef industry.”  Center to accomplishing these goals and mission has been an ever-important fleet of volunteers as well as the two paid staff positions of Executive Director and Executive Secretary. Kaley will join Sharon McKnight, NCA Executive Secretary, and the many membership volunteers in helping NCA accomplish its mission.
