Billings, Mont. – Responding to the unprecedented disconnect between live cattle prices and wholesale and retail beef prices evidenced in today’s cattle markets, R-CALF USA issued an invitation on Facebook Live yesterday announcing that the national cattle group would host a first-ever Facebook Live cattle industry meeting at 7:00 p.m. MDT on Monday, April 6, 2020.

R-CALF USA explained that the meeting will discuss the group’s March 18 letter to President Trump explaining that the group did not want a bailout; but rather, it wants President Trump to work with Congress to pass meaningful market reforms so U.S. cattle producers can receive a competitive price for their cattle without government price supports. The group said the meeting will focus on genuine solutions to fix the broken marketplace and will include a question and answer period so viewers can ask their specific questions.

The group invites everyone  to join the April 6 meeting via Facebook Live on R-CALF USA’s Facebook page at The group has extended an open invitation to all congressional members and staff to participate in the live discussion.

The video invitation can also be shared by e-mail and text via YouTube here:
