MORE ANIMALS: Bringing more livestock operations to the state, like this backgrounding feedlot, is the goal of the newly formed North Dakota Livestock Alliance. It recently hired an executive director.

The new North Dakota Livestock Alliance has named Amber Boeshans as its executive director.

“NDLA is very excited to have Amber on board as our executive director,” says Chairman Craig Jarolimek. “The agriculture industry continues to be a driving force in North Dakota, and we are fortunate to have an experienced livestock professional to help grow farms and ranches in a responsible and successful manner.”

Boeshans comes to NDLA with over 11 years of experience in the livestock industry. Boeshans was the livestock development specialist at the North Dakota Department of Agriculture. At NDDA, Boeshans helped livestock and dairy producers to explore different practices and systems in order to add value to their bottom line. She also provided technical support, research and contact information to commodity groups, individual producers, processors and producer cooperatives in order to enhance the profitability of the livestock and dairy industries. Boeshans also has experience as a herd manager and a dairy-insurance specialist. A Bismarck native, Boeshans holds a bachelor of science degree in animal and range science, with a production emphasis, from North Dakota State University.  

“I am thrilled to be brought on as the executive director of the North Dakota Livestock Alliance,” says Boeshans. “This is an incredible group of people and organizations that have joined together to support and expand North Dakota’s animal ag industries. It is of the utmost importance that our communities and neighbors understand the truth about modern animal ag practices, along with understanding our dedication to protecting our environment and producing safe and nutritious food. North Dakota has unprecedented opportunities to responsibly expand our animal ag industries, and I am honored to join the effort.”
