Drive for DC RAM Truck Auction Kicks off in San Antonio
SAN ANTONIO, TEXAS – The National Cattlemen’s Beef Association today kicked off its latest Drive for D.C. RAM Truck Auction, sponsored by RAM. All of the proceeds from the auction, which is now open, directly benefit NCBA’s policy efforts on Capitol Hill. The winning bidder receives a new RAM truck, the specifications of which can be found online at www.ramtrucks.com or at a local dealership.
“Cattlemen and women face a challenging landscape in Washington, D.C. As an organization, NCBA dedicates significant resources in the fight to make certain our members have the freedom they need to operate in a responsible and sustainable manner,” said Victoria, Texas, cattle producer and NCBA President Bob McCan. “We are very fortunate to have incredible sponsors like RAM Trucks to support the work we do in our nation’s capital on behalf of our members.”
McCan pointed out that NCBA has helped deliver several significant policy wins over the past year, including passage of the omnibus appropriations bill that included several key tax extenders such as Section 179 expensing. Those wins have a direct impact on the bottom line for farmers and ranchers.
“We’ve had some major wins in the past year, but we have a lot more work to do in 2015, including delivering much-needed tax stability for the cattle industry,” said McCan. “Thanks to the generous support of RAM Trucks, we will be one step closer to accomplishing the work that benefits our members and the entire beef industry.”
