During the 2022 Cattle Industry Convention and NCBA Trade Show, the executive committee of the National Cattlemen’s Beef Association approved the organization’s 2022 policy priorities. The priorities include an emphasis on strengthening the economic, environmental and social sustainability of the cattle industry.

The policy priorities include improving market leverage and opportunities through increased access to market data and risk management tools for producers and securing the future of the beef industry by protecting tax provisions, limiting regulatory burdens on farms and ranches, and leveling the playing field for producers.

Also included is boosting the resiliency of the beef supply chain by addressing labor shortages, improving processing capacity, expanding technology, strengthening transportation, and achieving key cattle industry priorities in the 2023 Farm Bill.

NCBA President-elect Don Schiefelbein said, “We are addressing the long-term needs of the cattle industry and advancing policies that will contribute to business success, economic growth and respect for our way of life.”
