The Buckingham Cattlemen's Association (BCA) has been working to serve beef producers in our area for over 25 years with innovative marketing avenues, bulk discounts on herd necessities, and improved genetics through their cooperative artificial Insemination program. They have been improving those programs each year and have made great strides in improvements when they were able to open the BARN facility in 2014, the Buckingham Agricultural Resource Network. With this new facility the BCA has increased it's wide range of benefits for local producers through programs and education. It comes only naturally to build on such progress with a local beef program. Through grants from the Tobacco Region Revitalization Commission and USDA, they were able to expand the BARN facility to include a BEEF hub. Equipped with a large scale refrigerator and freezer and good working relationships with local USDA inspected processing facility, Seven Hills, the Beef Hub provides an opportunity for BCA members who participate in the genetic package known so well to the BCA to provide BCA beef to our community. It also provides the opportunity for other producers in our area to take advantage of the relationship with processors to decrease expense related to processing, transportation, freezing, and temporarily storing local beef products.
