Title: NCBA Applauds House Passage of Farm Bill

WASHINGTON (June 21, 2018) – Today National Cattlemen’s Beef Association President Kevin Kester issued the following statement in response to the U.S. House of Representative's 213-211 vote to approve H.R. 2, the Agriculture and Nutrition Act:

"Today’s vote means that American cattlemen and women are one step closer to having the certainty they need to continue running their operations and contributing to rural economies. We are glad the House-passed bill addresses a number of priorities for producers, including authorization and funding for a national vaccine bank that prioritizes Foot and Mouth Disease (FMD) prevention. The bill also strengthens conservation programs and improves USDA’s foreign market development activities. House Agriculture Chairman Mike Conaway and all those who voted ‘yes’ deserve a great deal of thanks for their support.”
