Why Should I Join R-CALF USA?

We fight for the livelihoods of ranchers, giving voice on issues that harm the livestock industry. Our success is based, in part, on your participation. Historically, we have fought Antitrust, Checkoff, Animal ID and more…  successfully! Your membership of $50, helps continue that fight for current issues, like MCOOL and 50/14.
