NLPA Background 1

2019 Board of Directors

Chairman of the
NLPA Board Doug Hauser

The National Livestock Producers Association announces Doug Hauser, from Kingfisher, Oklahoma, as the new Chairman of the 98–year old agricultural organization. Hauser served as Vice Chair of NLPA since 2014.

In the multibillion–dollar business of livestock marketing and credit, a strong voice is crucial to protect business rights and a competitive environment. National Livestock Producers Association serves as just such a voice, speaking out on behalf of members and their patrons.

Hauser has been on the National Livestock Credit Corporation board, a local associated agency and member of NLPA, for over 20 years. He is a farmer and rancher, raising wheat and canola, with a stocker grazing operation running cattle on wheat and rye, and he owns a cow herd. It's all part of a multi–generational operation which includes Hauser's 90–year old father Gene, and sons Brian, who lives on the property, and Blane, who helps out when on break from Oklahoma State University. Hauser has also been a Oklahoma Farm Bureau agent for almost three decades.

  "As a representative to NLPA," says Hauser, "I've seen that we have a great opportunity to help out the livestock industry and our patrons at home. What we are called to do is to come together, work together as a cohesive group, to help protect our members and those producers back home and keep them up to date with what's going on as changes come along every day.

"We make a positive impact and protect our livelihoods as producers," he says. "We are here to make sure we have equitable markets and encourage those at a national level."

Strong alliances with other livestock and credit organizations aid in providing a clear voice on regional and national issues. In addition, absolute credibility earned over more than 98 years emphasizes the positions taken by the National Livestock Producers Association on behalf of its members.

"I have enjoyed my time with NLPA, but what we bring to the table is what is important," Hauser says. "I feel I probably gain even more than what I add, but as a whole, the bottom line is we need to stick together as a group and protect our producers. We survive together, we thrive together. NLPA is a big part of that."
