WASHINGTON (November 10, 2022) – Today, the National Cattlemen’s Beef Association (NCBA) hailed the signing of the National Security Memorandum to Strengthen the Security and Resilience of U.S. Food and Agriculture, which will allow the federal government to identify the threats facing our food supply and enhance national preparedness and response. 


Speer: Squishy Facts, Alarmist Narratives and Politicians

By: Nevil Speer

As election season ends, there’s never a shortage of candidates (on both sides) who play fast-and-loose with the facts and conflate every talking point.  But it’s not just politicians – it happens in the beef industry, too. I was reminded of that after someone shared with me a recent guest editorial in the Kansas City Star.   Let’s address some of the key statements.

Membership in the Kentucky Cattlemen’s Association is open to any individual or organization that has an interest in the cattle industry of Kentucky. KCA’s funding is generated partly by voluntary dues paid by the over 10,000 members belonging to KCA. There are 99 Cattlemen’s Association Chapters that represent beef producers across the state and serve as a link between local associations and KCA.

For more information, contact Rachel Cain, KCA Membership and Communications Coordinator.

KJCA Updates

YARDS Groups have been very steady in the past month. With events such as National FFA Convention and the North American International Livestock Expo going on, we have seen many groups from across the USA stop in and visit the YARDS. Groups range from states such as Kansas, New York, Georgia, Alabama, and Kentucky.

If you would like to book a group, feel free to reach out to Bradon Burks via email at [email protected].

We have also thoroughly enjoyed doing Beef Demonstrations in various classrooms across the state. Students are able to grasp a basic understanding of how beef gets from farm to plate, the importance of advocating for our industry, as well as how they can better prepare beef. With several others already booked, we are eager to continue these in other classrooms!
