In addition to all of the great benefits NCBA offers to its members, a producer or feeder membership also gets voting rights that are used to determine how NCBA chooses its position on policies affecting the cattle industry.
Note: Although, NCBA works extremely close to all of the state cattle associations, choosing to have your NCBA membership affiliated with a state cattle organization does not mean that you automatically are a member of that organization.
