NCBA Pays Tribute To Cattle Industry Champion Paul Hitch
On Friday at the 2008 Cattle Industry Annual Convention and Trade Show in Reno, the National Cattlemen’s Beef Association (NCBA) honored Paul Hitch, a cattleman and longtime livestock industry leader from Guymon, Oklahoma. Best known for his success in cattle feeding, Hitch is president and chairman of Hitch Enterprises, Inc. and Hitch AgriBusiness, Inc. – diversified agricultural operations based in the Oklahoma panhandle region.
Hitch is a former chairman of the NCBA Policy Division and NCBA Live Cattle Marketing Committee. He had served the past two years as vice-president and president-elect of NCBA.
But he was unable to accept a term as NCBA president, due to an ongoing bout with cancer.
