DENVER – Drought, fires, floods, regulatory overreach, skyrocketing input costs and record herd shortage are all issues cattlemen and women have unfortunately become very familiar with over the past couple of years. NCBA’s Cattlemen to Cattlemen will take a closer look at the current state of the beef industry during a live call-in show on Tues., Nov. 13, at 8:30 p.m. Eastern Standard Time (EST) on RFD-TV.

“Our industry has weathered through tough times. By being resilient, cattlemen and women stick it out and come out stronger on the other side,” said National Cattlemen’s Beef Association (NCBA) CEO Forrest Roberts. “This special episode of NCBA’s Cattlemen to Cattlemen will allow us to answer questions, listen to producer concerns and discuss strategies that are crucial in helping ranchers have successful cattle operations, while continuing to produce the safest, highest quality beef in the world.”

Joining Roberts on the panel are NCBA President J.D. Alexander, Vice President of Government Affairs Colin Woodall, CattleFax CEO Randy Blach and Executive Director of Producer Education Dr. John Paterson.
