Beef producers from across the country are in Washington, D.C. this week for the National Cattlemen’s Beef Association Legislative Conference, where they are learning about issues affecting the cattle industry and lobbying legislators on these important matters.
NCBA President Tracy Brunner says defeating the EPA’s WOTUS regulations - which are currently being litigated in federal court - is a high priority when it comes to protecting the private property rights of members. He says cattle producers should be able retain the water rights they purchase with a piece of land.
Another hot topic being discussed is how to best utilize the funds raised by the NCBA Political Action Committee. Brunner says investing in candidates who are open to working with the cattle industry is key.
