America’s beef farmers want certainty that a Foot-and-Mouth Disease vaccine bank will be authorized and funded and that trade promotion and access to foreign markets will remain a priority.

National Cattlemen’s Beef (NCBA) Association President Kevin Kester issued a statement regarding US House and Senate passage of the 2018 Farm Bill conference report:

"America’s cattlemen and women want common sense and certainty from Congress this holiday season and throughout the year - today they received that through the passage of the Farm Bill. Certainty that a Foot-and-Mouth Disease vaccine bank will be authorized and funded. Certainty that important conservation programs will be reauthorized and funded. And certainty that trade promotion and access to foreign markets will remain a priority in the years to come.”

The National Cattlemen's Beef Association has represented America's cattle producers since 1898. As the largest association of cattle producers, NCBA works to create new markets and increase demand for beef.
