R-CALF USA invites you to come learn about the issues facing your U.S. cattle industry. Learn about R-CALF USA’s work to accomplish its membership-directed policy so that all U.S. cattle producers remain independent and profitable. R-CALF USA has led the fight for U.S. cattle producers’ independence, profitability and viability. This year will be crucial for our industry:
- Will the courts continue protecting cattle producers’ First Amendment rights in our checkoff lawsuit?
- Will Congress strengthen anti-monopoly laws to stop the exodus of cattle ranchers?
- Will American producers and consumers once again benefit from mandatory country-of-origin labeling (COOL) on beef?
- Will the new United States-Mexico-Canada Agreement (USMCA) undo the 25 years of damage that its predecessor NAFTA caused to U.S. cattle producers?
