NCBA Urges Steps to Maintain Beef Supply

The National Cattlemen’s Beef Association (NCBA) is working to maintain an adequate supply of beef for U.S. consumers during the current COVID-19 outbreak.

NCBA Vice President of Government Affairs Ethan Lane says they have taken a number of steps to help protect the value chain, starting with sending a request to Vice President Mike Pence for assurance that meat inspection services will continue to move forward. “It’s critically important that these functions remain in place and those workers stay engaged to ensure that we can continue to process cattle and get them to their retail destinations in a timely manner.”

Lane outlines other steps they are taking in this statement.
