The National Cattlemen’s Beef Association set its Top 2021 Policy Priorities that feature a focus on advocating for a business climate that increases opportunities for producer profitability.


“There’s no doubt last year was a difficult one for cattle producers and we must work to implement sound policy and focus our attention on the legislative and regulatory areas that’ll give U.S. cattle producers the most added value,” says new NCBA President Jerry Bohn. “I am looking forward to working together with volunteer leadership, state affiliates, and stakeholders around the country to tackle the most pressing issues facing our industry.”

Policy priorities include price discovery and transparency in cattle markets, which are a concern for NCBA members, making it an organizational priority. The organization will continue to ensure that all alternative plant-based or cell-grown protein products are labeled truthfully, and their ingredients are fully represented.

NCBA is committed to protecting those in the cattle industry while strengthening the beef supply chain to meet the growing demand for American beef.

Removing non-tariff barriers to increase worldwide markets for U.S. beef is another top priority for the NCBA. The organization will also emphasize to government officials that the U.S. cattle industry is the global model for sustainable beef production.
