ISSUES & POLICY

Nebraska Cattlemen is guided and directed by the policies which are developed and approved by our membership.  These policies are published yearly in the Nebraska Cattlemen Policy Handbook.

Nebraska Cattlemen has six policy committees that research and discuss issues of importance to Nebraska’s beef cattle producers. These committees develop policy resolutions that are submitted to the Nebraska Cattlemen board of directors for approval.

The Nebraska Cattle Industry is the state’s single largest industry. Cattle outnumber people 4  to 1 in Nebraska. The cows and the 4.7 million head that are fed here annually total nearly 6.64 million. Cattle sales total more than $6.2 billion a year, and the impact on Nebraska’s economy is unmistakable.  Nebraska Cattlemen councils work hard to find solutions, protect and represent cattlemen within the state.
