A media release said Tamara Hurt was reappointed for a three-year term by New Mexico Secretary of Agriculture Jeff Witte, and approved by Governor Susana Martinez.
Hurt is a trustee for Hurt Cattle Company, Inc., a large cow-calf operation in Luna, Hidalgo and Grant counties.
Hurt also is a certified public accountant in Deming, where she serves agricultural producers, small businesses and private non-profits.
She has previously served as the beef council vice-president and secretary.
The New Mexico Beef Council’s mission reportedly is to protect and increase demand for beef and beef products in New Mexico through national and state-developed consumer marketing programs, thereby enhancing profit opportunities for beef producers in the state.
