There's an old adage that says the world is run by those who show up and with that in mind this week members of the U.S. Cattlemen's Association are in Washington, DC for their annual fly-in meeting with member of Congress and Trump Administration officials about important policy issues impacting today's U.S. cattle industry. Kenny Graner is the USCA president for Mandan, ND and explains why it's so important to have boots on Capitol Hill.

"This time of the year has always been our June fly-in" said Graner. "It's important to bring the issues to our legislators as well as sitting down and visiting with USDA, APHIS, FSIS and other trade associations as well. We need at least once a year get out here and present our issues that we believe in and need to be addressed."

USCA key legislative priorities include truth in labeling, livestock transportation regulations, animal health and identification, country-of-origin labeling, and increased transparency and true price discovery in the livestock marketplace.
