Pete McClymontIt shouldn’t take the new Executive Vice President of the Nebraska Cattlemen very long to get up to speed.

Pete McClymont spent a decade on the organization’s board, was president when he stepped down in 2006 to become its Vice President of Legislative Affairs and top lobbyist.

McClymont succeeds Michael Kelsey, who left earlier this summer after 9 years for an equivalent position in Oklahoma.

Current Nebraska Cattlemen President Dale Spencer says the organization is excited to get McClymont because he comes with excellent industry and legislative experience as well as widespread respect from cattlemen, others in the agriculture industry, and state lawmakers.

McClymont says he’s honored and humbled to be selected as executive vice president and, as a beef producer himself, excited to continue his professional service to his fellow members.

McClymont, a graduate of Holdrege High and UNL, grew up on a diversified farming and ranching operation that include cattle feeding and row crops primarily corn and soybeans.

He worked on the family operation with his father and brothers before going to work as the NC’s fulltime lobbyist as Vice President of Legislative Affairs
