Russell selected to lead Missouri Beef Industry Council

Mark Russell, Jefferson City, Mo., has been selected as the executive director of the Missouri Beef Industry Council, according to Matt Reynolds, president of the association.

“Mark brings a tremendous background and experience in all facets to MBIC. His knowledge and enthusiasm for the beef industry is impressive and we are extremely pleased to have him on-board,” Reynolds said.

Russell’s most recent role as director of business development for the Missouri Soybean Association and Merchandising Council has allowed him to work with businesses that impact Missouri agriculture. His career has centered on agriculture and promotion with early positions in the Nebraska and Midwest cattle industries. He also headed up the grass-roots efforts when the Missouri Department of Agriculture launched the AgriMissouri program.

His career has also included working as a young farmer advisor in education and the business development manager for the State of Missouri’s Department of Economic Development. Attracting ag industries to the state has been a primary role for him in his career. Successful projects included DuPont Pioneer’s expansion in New Madrid and Ag Odor Control launching in Salisbury, Mo.

In his youth, Russell grew up in central Missouri on a beef operation close to Olean where his parents reside today. He was active in 4-H and FFA and grew up “sitting in a saddle” on the family’s ranch. Horse showing and team roping kept the family busy when not ranching.

Rusell and his family have a small grass and livestock farm east of Jefferson City and a crop farm in Linn County. Russell and his wife, Sherri, have three children. Russell begins on July 1.
