Cattlemen React to Freedom Caucus Derailing Farm Bill Filled with Priorities for Farmers and Ranchers

Fri, 18 May 2018 12:05:16 CDT

Cattlemen React to Freedom Caucus Derailing Farm Bill Filled with Priorities for Farmers and Ranchers National Cattlemen’s Beef Association Executive Director of Government Affairs Allison Cooke today issued the following statement in response to the vote on H.R. 2, the Agriculture and Nutrition Act of 2018, in the House of Representatives:



"Today’s vote on the 2018 House Farm Bill is a disappointing outcome for American cattlemen and women. It is unfortunate that some in Congress chose not to stand with the farmers and ranchers who work hard every day to feed families in the United States and around the world. The bill addresses a number of priorities for producers, including an expanded Foot and Mouth Disease vaccine bank, funding for environmental stewardship initiatives, and trade promotion programs. It is critical that Congress pass a new Farm Bill before September 30th to provide certainty for cattle and beef producers. We will continue to work with our allies in Congress to make that happen.”
