(WASHINGTON) - The United States Cattlemen’s Association (USCA) will bring cattle producers from across the country this week to Washington, D.C. for its annual fly-in.  A main focus of the week’s legislative meetings will be in support of a bipartisan Farm Bill.

USCA applauds the leadership of Senate Agriculture Committee Chairman Pat Robers (R-KS) and Ranking Member Debbie Stabenow (D-MI) in releasing draft text for a bipartisan Farm Bill, which will be taken up by the Committee this week.

USCA President Kenny Graner commented on the draft bill, “USCA appreciates the work done by the Senate Committee leadership in seeking input from all groups and stakeholders in drafting this bill. The bipartisan legislation includes positive changes that address the current situation for ranchers and farmers, and future producers.”

“USCA will be in D.C. this week for our annual fly-in.  We will support passage of a bipartisan Farm Bill in the Senate and will urge the House to do the same.  The Farm Bill is an important piece of legislation for all U.S. cattle producers and a bipartisan bill is needed to secure its path forward.”
