The board of Delta County Livestock Association would like to thank Mark Roeber for the many years of service he has contributed to agriculture at the local, state and national level. Mark has been a leader at the local level with the Delta County Master Plan in the '90s.
Mark made sure that agriculture was well represented at the meetings and that the economic viability of the beef cattle industry was not compromised. In addition, Mark has worked on U.S. Forest Service and Bureau of Land Management issues and the full scope of the multiple use mandate that our public lands were set up to provide which includes energy, recreation, food and fiber production, and logging.
Mark has been a leader at the state and national level and has worked through several controversial issues involving water and private property rights, endangered species legislation, proposed ballot initiatives regarding animal rights language and protection of the agriculture industry. It was through this effort and his experience at the local level that Mark worked in concert with the affected county commissioners to determine feasible locally driven solutions. Delta County is comprised of 55 percent public land and this has a significant impact on the local economy. Mark continues to provide leadership at the local, state, and national level in the full scope of agriculture and public lands issues.
Delta County Livestock Association thanks Mark Roeber for his thoughtful approach to complicated issues, years of dedication and experience on a variety of significant issues at all levels and the ability to bring committed interests to the table to find solutions that maintain businesses and families.
