NCBA Members Put “Boots On The Hill” During 2021 Legislative Conference

Over 300 NCBA members put “Boots on the Hill” during NCBA’s 2021 Virtual Legislative Conference held April 18-21. While there weren’t any cowboy boots and cowboy hats seen roaming the halls of the Capitol, this year members from across the country participated in meetings with their Members of Congress and agency officials through virtual platforms.

“Growing up as part of the cattle industry, I have a deep-rooted appreciation for the important work that cattle producers do each and every day,” said Dawn Caldwell, an NCBA member from Edgar, Nebraska.

NCBA members across the country share a similar passion. In conjunction with Earth Week, Legislative Conference gave members the opportunity to engage with lawmakers and share the positive impact the cattle industry has in the realm of sustainability — environmentally, economically, and socially.

“Cattle producers across the country play a critical role in ensuring a safe, sustainable, and abundant food supply. This week I have valued the opportunity to engage with decision-makers in Washington D.C. and share the story of the industry. The decisions being made by lawmakers have real impacts on the ability of producers across the country to have successful operations for generations to come. I am thankful to be a member of NCBA, and greatly appreciate their ability to facilitate meetings with federal agency leadership,” Caldwell said.
