WASHINGTON (August 16, 2023) – Today, the National Cattlemen’s Beef Association (NCBA) thanked the Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) for supporting farmers and ranchers by rejecting two petitions from environmental activist groups.

“NCBA appreciates the EPA recognizing that America’s farmers and ranchers are committed to ensuring clean water and investing in a sustainable future,” said NCBA Chief Counsel Mary-Thomas Hart. “By rejecting these two petitions that sought to directly attack animal agriculture, the EPA is protecting cattle producers from frivolous distractions and allowing them to return to the important job of stewarding our natural resources and feeding the nation.”
