Not your typical cattlemen’s association…
THE POWER OF GRASSROOTS STRENGTH
The United States Cattlemen’s Association (USCA) remains unwavering in its main policy priority: strengthening the bottom line of the U.S. cattle producer. We know that for your operation to be sustainable for future generations, it must first be profitable. We witnessed the power of grassroots strength this year as we tackled issues like truth in labeling and Hours-of-Service reform, and we look forward to continuing that momentum for many years to come.
Our policy committees worked overtime this year to ensure our success on Capitol Hill. Learn more below!
Cattle Price Discovery and Transparency Act: Call your Members of Congress and request their support of S. 228 or H.R. 1287. This bill would restore transparency and accountability in the cattle market by establishing regional cash minimums and equipping producers with more market information, including permanently authorizing a cattle contract library.
American Beef Labeling Act: Call your Members of Congress and request their support of S. 52. This bill reinstates mandatory country-of-origin labeling requirements for beef. Specifically, the bill requires the Office of the U.S. Trade Representative (USTR) to develop a means of reinstating the requirements that complies with the rules of the World Trade Organization. The USTR and the Department of Agriculture must implement the means within one year.
