NCBA Welcomes Passage of Senate Farm Bill, Says “More Work Remains”

WASHINGTON – (June 28, 2018) — Kevin Kester, President of the National Cattlemen’s Beef Association, today released the following statement in response to passage of the Senate Farm Bill, which passed by a vote of 86-11:

“Today’s successful Senate vote is another step forward for the Farm Bill, but much work remains to address the priorities of American cattlemen and women. While the Senate version includes permanent authorization of the Foot and Mouth Disease Vaccine Bank, zero dollars are provided. The Senate version also left out important changes to the Conservation Title that were included in the House version of the bill.  We appreciate all the Senate’s work on behalf of cattle producers, but the House bill includes provisions of critical importance to NCBA members.”
