Advocacy. Action. Authority.
NCBA works on behalf of the beef community.
The Tyson beef processing facility in Holcomb, KS, has been shut down due to a fire they sustained on August 9-10, 2019. We recognize the enormous negative economic impact this plant shut-down is having on the beef industry. We want to reassure you that we are doing everything in our power to minimize the impact this is having on the market. NCBA also followed up on phone calls with official letters of request to DOT, USDA, and CFTC for regulatory flexibility.
Initiated in 1898, the National Cattlemen's Beef Association is the marketing organization and trade association for America's one million cattle farmers and ranchers. With offices in Denver and Washington, D.C., NCBA is a consumer-focused, producer-directed organization representing the largest segment of the nation's food and fiber industry.
NCBA takes great pride in being a premier source of education information to help producers understand changing times, adjust with them and use them toward working to be as efficient and profitable as possible. You will find some of NCBA's most successful producer education programs, search a library of topics that will be of benefit to you in learning more about practices that can help improve your bottom-line, read how other producers have benefited from these programs and much more.
