Cattlemen Applaud Governors' of OK, TX and KS Work to Get President Trump to Order CRP Grazing

Tue, 04 Apr 2017 16:11:41 CDT

Cattlemen Applaud Governors' of OK, TX and KS Work to Get President Trump to Order CRP Grazing Craig Uden, president of the National Cattlemen’s Beef Association, today released the following statement in response to USDA’s authorization of emergency grazing on Conservation Reserve Program (CRP) lands in Kansas, Oklahoma, and Texas:


President Trump, the USDA, and Governors Brownback, Fallin, and Abbott deserve a great deal of credit for moving swiftly to open these lands to grazing so that many of the cattle producers who were dramatically impacted by last month’s wildfires can feed their herds. Those devastating wildfires burned more than 1.5 million acres in Kansas, Oklahoma, and Texas and killed an estimated 9,000 - 18,000 cattle. Those cattle can’t be replaced, but today’s action will help ranchers salvage what remains of their herds.”
