Canadian Cattlemen’s Association (CCA) executive vice president Dennis Laycraft’s recent trip to the National Cattlemen’s Beef Association (NCBA) convention in Nashville was a busy week.
To start, Laycraft met with new leaders of organizations that frequent the convention, who were really appreciative that CCA made the effort to get down there.
On Laycraft’s agenda of issues to discuss was transparency in cattle pricing — as the U.S. is working through legislative initiatives putting requirements on cash trading. The topic generated plenty of discussion amongst the cattle market committee.
