New, Softer Version Of R-CALF Is Up & Running
Most people with a passion for the industry see three industry organizations as even more disruptive than what two proved to be. However, the newest organization — the U.S. Cattlemen’s Association (USCA) — already appears to have assumed status as the legitimate opposition group to the National Cattlemen’s Beef Association (NCBA).
Initially, according to votes and board membership, one would have said that Ranchers-Cattlemen Action Legal Fund (R-CALF) was splitting right down the middle. But as things have progressed, that appears not to be the case. The majority of R-CALF’s committee leadership, and certainly the leaders with the closest ties to actual cattlemen, appear to be joining the new USCA.
