NAT'L CATTLEMEN'S BEEF ASSN WELCOMES REPUBLICAN SENATE FARM BILL FRAMEWORK
Source: National Cattlemen's Beef Association (NCBA) news release

WASHINGTON - Today, the National Cattlemen's Beef Association (NCBA) welcomed the Farm Bill framework released by Senate Agriculture Committee Ranking Member John Boozman (R-AR). Included in the framework are top priorities for cattle producers, similar to the bipartisan House Farm Bill, such as funding to protect the U.S. cattle herd from foreign animal disease, continued support for voluntary conservation programs, and other critical food security provisions.

"Thank you to Ranking Member Boozman for building on the successful, bipartisan work of Chairman GT Thompson, to put forward a Farm Bill that cattle producers across the country can proudly support," said NCBA President and Wyoming rancher Mark Eisele.

"This Senate Farm Bill framework understands the full threat of a foreign animal disease outbreak on U.S. soil and acknowledges that cattle farmers and ranchers carry out vital work, through voluntary conservation programs, to preserve our Nation's natural resources. NCBA welcomes this positive step forward and urges the Senate to follow the Ranking Member's lead, as the policy ideas in this framework have already received bipartisan support in the House."
