The Public Lands Council and the National Cattlemen’s Beef Association announced that registration is now open for their 2013 legislative conferences. PLC will be hosting its event April 15 to 16 in Washington, D.C., while NCBA’s conference will kick off the evening of April 16 and will run through April 18. In addition to meeting with their U.S. representatives and senators about a variety of issues affecting the livestock industry, attendees will hear from administration officials, industry experts and other multiple-use industry representatives.

PLC President Brice Lee and NCBA President Scott George agreed that it is important for livestock producers to visit Washington, D.C., and have their voices heard on Capitol Hill.

“The policies made in Washington affect our members’ livestock operations on a daily basis. It’s important that cattle producers meet with their elected officials in person to discuss issues such as disaster assistance, the farm bill and environmental regulations,” said George. “I encourage all cattlemen and women to become more involved in our nation’s legislative process in order to ensure that the beef industry remains successful and our agricultural economy remains vibrant.”

During the conferences, attendees will be hearing from government agency personnel, congressional staff and industry members. After meeting with congressional representatives and staff on Capitol Hill, PLC members will have the opportunity to hear from their senators and representatives during a congressional address at the Capitol Building Visitors’ Center. After their Hill visits, NCBA conference attendees are invited to a reception on Capitol Hill hosted by Outback Steakhouse on April 17.

“This is an invaluable experience for ranchers who are able to make the trip to Washington,” said Lee. “They take home great information from their congressional representatives and the federal regulatory agencies, and they make important contacts that can last a lifetime. Every single producer also benefits from this conference, because we carry the message to Washington about the issues that are important to the bottom line of our nation’s livestock producers operating with federal grazing permits.”
