Message from the Chairman


Have you ever wished you could have an impact on the future of the U.S. beef cattle industry? The NCBA-PAC gives you the opportunity. As you may know, our legislative efforts in Washington, D.C, are vital to the continuing success of the cattle industry. With fewer and fewer members of Congress with a background in production agriculture and with well-funded, anti-animal agriculture activists trying to put a stop to our industry, it is critical that we constantly work to be the authoritative voice in the U.S. beef cattle industry in Washington, D.C. As the nation’s oldest, largest and most respected association of cattle producers we must get involved and explain our message. Our message is a good one. 

In addition to caring for our cattle’s health and welfare, we also care for and protect our natural resources. We represent an industry with more than $44 billion in farm gate receipts annually. When environmental, animal welfare and tax issues arise, members of Congress should turn to us for advice. One way we can educate legislators, counteract the falsehoods spread by activists and change the feelings about our industry is with a strong Political Action Committee (PAC). The NCBA-PAC has set a goal to raise $500,000 yearly to accomplish that job, but we need your help. With your investment in the NCBA-PAC, we can communicate our message on Capitol Hill.

PLEASE get involved and contribute as much as you can afford. Do your part to preserve the future of the beef industry.

“Our country does face big problems, but I am very optimistic about America and her future, especially when I see the commitment and values of the ranch families of the NCBA.  It’s important that you make your voice heard in the discussions about America’s direction and let those who represent you in Washington know your views.  Also, your financial support for the NCBA-PAC is essential to making your voice heard.  Only 5% of NCBA members give to the PAC now: your voice will be strong if you help strengthen NCBA's political muscle today.”

I am an NCBA Member...
...because I think they're the greatest national association
we have in this country. And they provide wonderful
assistance and services to cattlemen across this country.
