U.S. Cattle Producers Prepare for Annual Trip to Washington, DC

(WASHINGTON) - On June 10th and 11th, cattlemen and cattlewomen representing all regions of the US will put boots on the ground for meetings in Washington, DC. As part of the annual United States Cattlemen’s Association (USCA) fly-in, members will lobby on behalf of truth in labeling, livestock transportation regulations, animal health and identification, country-of-origin labeling, and increased transparency and true price discovery in the livestock marketplace. USCA’s President Kenny Graner issued the following statement: “This annual event gives USCA members the opportunity to discuss industry issues that impact their bottom line with the lawmakers who have the ability to make change happen. We have seen significant results in the past as a result of these conversations and we are confident this year will be no exception. There truly is no better substitute to enact change than grassroots action, and we thank our members who have taken the time and expense to make the trip. “We will also welcome members of our recently-formed Next Generation chapter of young producers to share their story with Members of Congress. This generation represents the future of beef production in America, and we could not be prouder to have those young ranchers alongside us.”
