SIOUX FALLS, S.D. (AP) - Two South Dakota residents have been appointed to the Cattlemen’s Beef Promotion and Research Board.

Agriculture Secretary Tom Vilsack appointed Eric J. Sumption, of Frederick, and Tammy Basel, of Union Center, to the board along with 35 others from different states.

The 100-member board is authorized by the Beef Promotion and Research Act of 1985 and is responsible for oversight and management of the Beef Check-off funds.

Sumption and Basel are filling positions previously held by Linda Gilbert, of Buffalo, and Danni Beer, of Keldron, who both completed two, three-year terms.

Vaughn Meyer, of Reva, and Gary Sharp, of Bath, are currently representing South Dakota on the board.
