R-CALF USA is a one-member/one-vote organization. Voting members must own cattle. Associate members support the cause and do not own cattle. Activities carried out by R-CALF USA for the benefit of the U.S. cattle industry are funded exclusively by the independent cattle producers who pay their membership dues and by cattle producers, main-street businesses, and other individuals who participate in and contribute to fund-raising events.
R-CALF USA works on various issues that affect the continued profitability and viability of independent U.S. cattle producers, such as country-of-origin labeling, checkoff reform, livestock price reporting, animal health concerns, captive supplies and packer ownership of livestock, as well as various trade agreements.
