Helping lawmakers better understand the cattle industry

Helping members of Congress better understand the cattle industry is one part of the job for the National Cattlemen’s Beef Association.

CEO Colin Woodall says that means knowing which members of Congress or candidates are being supported by which Political Action Committees (or PACs).  “We go and look at members, to see who they are taking their money from,” he says.  “And then we sit down and make sure they understand that if they are taking money from the Humane Society of the United States, that they are actively supporting a group that wants to put us out of business.  And that is unacceptable.”

He tells Brownfield there are instances where candidates are receiving financial support by both ag groups like NCBA, but also animal activist organizations.
