NCBA sets priorities for upcoming year

The membership of the National Cattlemen’s Beef Association set their policy priorities for the coming year. 

NCBA’s newly installed president, Mark Eisele of Wyoming says addressing the estate tax issue will be front and center. “We’d like to keep those levels where they are at now,” he says.  “Without that, there’s going to be problems with ranches having succession and holding them intact for their heirs.”

He tells Brownfield they’ll also work on protecting public and private property rights.  “They’re really the same thing,” he says.  “But we have to fight the fights in a little different way.  Those are government-owned lands versus our private lands.  But the end result is the same, if we lose one, we lose the other.”

Resolutions on traceability, risk management programs, and an endangered species act policy were all adopted by the membership.
