        COMMEMORATING the 75th Anniversary of the New York
        Beef Producers' Association
  WHEREAS,  The  agricultural  industry is part of the foundation upon
which our distinct American heritage is built; and
  WHEREAS, New York State, along with the rest of the  United  States,
is  dependent  on  our  agricultural  industry  for  a  variety  of food
products; and
  WHEREAS, It is the custom of this Legislative Body  to  support  and
promote  the  historic  and significant observance of those agricultural
organizations which enrich this great Empire State; and
  WHEREAS, Attendant to such concern, and  in  full  accord  with  its
long-standing  traditions,  this  Legislative  Body  is  justly proud to
commemorate the  75th  Anniversary  of  the  New  York  Beef  Producers'
Association; and
  WHEREAS, The New York Beef Producers' Association (NYBPA) is a group
of  beef  producers dedicated to working together for the improvement of
the beef industry; and
  WHEREAS, Formed in 1947, and officially incorporated on October  26,
1949,  as  the  N.Y.S.  Beef  Cattle  Breeders  and  Feeders Improvement
Project; and
  WHEREAS,  On  May  2,  1962,  it  was  renamed  the  New  York  Beef
Cattlemen's  Association,  and  on  July  9,  2002,  they received their
certificate to officially  change  their  name  to  the  New  York  Beef
Producers' Association; and
  WHEREAS,  Today,  under  the  able  leadership  of Executive Council
President Ted Cardomote, the  NYBPA  remains  true  to  its  mission  by
encouraging  friendly  exchanges  of  ideas  among  members; promote and
protect the interest of beef producers in New York State; aid members in
the purchase, sale  and  breeding  of  quality  cattle;  cooperate  with
Cornell Cooperative Extension, NYS Department of Agriculture and Markets
and  other agencies; encourage youth participation in the beef industry;
promote beef to consumers and  create  a  positive  image  of  the  beef
industry  to  the general population; work with lawmakers and the Empire
State Council  of  Agricultural  Organizations  to  create  policy  that
benefits  agriculture in general and the beef industry specifically; and
affiliate with the  National  Cattlemen's  Beef  Association  to  effect
policy decisions and promote the industry on a national level; and
  WHEREAS,  The  success  of the NYBPA is in direct correlation to the
efforts of its members, whose  involvement  is,  and  always  has  been,
characterized  by an impressive commitment, an unbridled enthusiasm, and
an uncompromising standard of excellence in all endeavors on  behalf  of
the institution and the community it serves; and
  WHEREAS,  It  is the sense of this Legislative Body to recognize and
applaud the leaders  of  commerce  and  industry  whose  accomplishments
contribute  to  the economic health and prosperity of the communities of
the State of New York and to the quality of life  of  its  people;  now,
therefore, be it
  RESOLVED,  That  this Legislative Body pause in its deliberations to
commemorate the  75th  Anniversary  of  the  New  York  Beef  Producers'
