Mail: NCBA puts cattle producers out of businessTell North Platte what you think
 

Due to Congress, multinational meat packers and NCBA's past and current policies (and their affiliates), if you’re a USA cow calf producer with 100 cows, since December 2014 after their work to kill COOL, they have cost you more than $200,000 in lost revenues.

In the past few years, they have put 84,920 feedyards out of business and (caused a) 43% loss in beef cattle operations, losing 543,950 operations, according to the USDA.

Why would anyone in the business support a group that promotes less producers, feeders "and meat packers?"

By the way, the R-CALF USA convention crowd consisted of cattlemen, unlike NCBA's convention, which was filled with vendors and corporate flunkies.
