Cattle Industry Conference Wraps Up with Policy Priorities
- Beef USA

DENVER (July 18, 2015) – Over 600 cattlemen and women gathered in Denver, Colo., this week to discuss the policy priorities for the cattle industry for the upcoming year. Throughout the meeting, the various policy committees reviewed expiring policies and discussed proposed policy brought forward from the National Cattlemen’s Beef Association’s state affiliates. According to Philip Ellis, NCBA President and Chugwater, Wyo., cattleman, the leadership of the association renewed their dedication to the policy priorities for 2015.

“The Cattle Industry Summer Conference is the time when our producer members are able to gather and tackle the business of the association,” said Ellis. “From continuing and renewing current and expiring policy, to discussing and passing policy to tackle the upcoming and emerging issues, this is our chance to work together to ensure NCBA remains on the forefront representing our membership.”

The Dietary Guidelines for Americans process continues with Congressional oversight. NCBA members remain committed to working with the administration and Congress to ensure the final guidelines reflect the highest quality science and the role of lean beef in a healthy diet.

The EPA has finalized their “waters of the United States” rule, and NCBA’s membership stands firmly opposed to this land grab by the administration. NCBA continues to work with Congress to rein in the administration’s regulatory onslaught and has joined with other land use groups in litigation again with the agency.

HORNS 101

SIMPLE COLOR DESCRIPTIONS ARE BETTER!

  When filling out registration applications, be careful not to "over do" the color description. Remember, you are limited to only 18 words. The list of approved words you are allowed to use is listed on the back of the paper registration application. If using HORNS, the list of approved words can be accessed by clicking on the "?" in the circle at the front of the line for the color description. Always start your description with the body, example:  "white body with… brown ears... red spots... red lineback… black tail, etc." 
  The form, paper and on HORNS, does not have space for you to list every little spot or patch on the animal.  Remember:  Simple color descriptions are better!  Long detailed color descriptions tend to overload the registration certificate and truly are not needed. 

Questions about color descriptions? 
Contact Rick or Dana at (817) 625-6241.
