Busy October for NCBA
With the farm and ranch report, I'm Rick Worthington. October twenty nineteen has been a busy month for the NCAA. The NCAA, Ethan Layne is the new V.P. of government affairs and says they've been working along with the White House to get some critical work done for ranchers, as well as beef producers with this administration and this president.
Things move quickly. And some of our members reached out and said, hey, wait. The White House is asking us, you know, if we can be there in the next 24 hours for this for this next event. So it speaks to the speed with which I think this White House is trying to move to, to make sure they get some wins on the board and show producers around the country and voters around the country that they're there trying to deliver on those promises that were made during the during the election.
And it's been a big month personally for Lane as well, who is now filling the shoes of Colin Woodall, who also just moved up into the role of CEO of the SBA.
My goal is to make sure we further that and continue that and make sure that that environment continues to exist, because that's what's going to allow us to provide this this important work that we do for cattle producers across the country, across such a huge range of issues, really and truly, my my biggest challenge is just to try to maintain what what he's built on and keep putting W's on the board.
This month alone, the NCAA has been involved in a huge trade agreement that was made with Japan, as well as dealing with the explosion of fake meat available in restaurants across the country.
