Have you read a headline or heard a news story this year from politicians talking about our industry and thought, “What on earth are they doing in Washington?” Legislative Conference is your opportunity to speak directly with decisionmakers in our nation’s capital and make your voice heard!

The policies being shaped every day by lawmakers and federal regulators have a direct impact on the future of your operation. We need your perspective inside in the Beltway to advocate on behalf of farmers and ranchers on the issues that matter most. By adding your voice, you can help support NCBA’s work on:

  • ESA
  • NEPA
  • Fake Meat
  • 30x30
  • Sustainability
  • Transportation
  • Infrastructure
  • Trade
  • And much more!
Join our Washington-based policy team for three days of advocacy on Capitol Hill, meetings with members of Congress and agency officials, education, guest speakers and fun networking with fellow NCBA producers.

Your firsthand stories and experiences are the most powerful tool we have for enacting change in Washington and ensuring that our federal-level allies defend the future of the U.S. cattle & beef industry for generations to come. This is your chance to get involved.

"By just showing up and participating you can make a difference in Washington D.C. People don’t believe it, but it’s true. It’s important to be involved and it’s really gratifying knowing you make an impact."

Kevin Kester, 2018 NCBA President

"PLC and NCBA help facilitate a great opportunity for rural producers to meet with the agency personnel as well as their elected officials about the issues affecting producers. This is especially important with the new administration and transition process to ensure that cattlemen’s priorities and recommendations for regulatory reform are being heard." 

Kacie Burns, Colorado Cattlemen's Association

Legislative Conference


"NCBA has always been...

...the leader for our industry. They represent the values of cattle ranchers in the country."
