Animal health boost - NCBA’s priority gets green light

The Animal Drug User Fee Act (ADUFA) is sticking around for another five years. And we have the President and the National Cattlemen’s Beef Association (NCBA) to thank. 

Todd Wilkinson, NCBA’s head honcho, shares, “Healthy cattle are our jam! We pitched ADUFA at the 2023 Cattle shindig, and guess what? It worked!” This success spotlights how NCBA is making waves in the U.S. capital. 

Diving into the ADUFA details, it empowers the FDA to pocket some change from animal health businesses. This kitty helps streamline the go-ahead for innovative animal treatments. It's a win-win, with cattle getting ace care and us savoring delish food. Hats off to NCBA for ensuring a smooth sailing for this law! 

NCBA’s vet guru, Dr. Kathy Simmons, chips in, “New-age animal drug magic is happening. ADUFA helps the FDA check these out and share them with cattle caretakers.” A standing ovation for Congress and the President for locking this in.

“We are the music to the sale.”

That’s how full-time auctioneer — and the 2014 World Livestock Auctioneer champion — Baine Lotz explains his job. This year, the annual event, hosted by the Livestock Marketing Association since 1963, drew 31 semi-finalists who competed by selling cattle at the Bloomington Livestock Exchange in Wisconsin. The competition attracts cattle buyers and sellers as well as fans who come strictly to take in the spectacle. But the cowboy hat–festooned contestants take their fast-talking pretty seriously.
