Beltway Beef Commentary - Congressman Cory Gardner

By Mike Deering, NCBA Communications

NCBA constantly hears from cattlemen and women from across the country about their legitimate concerns regarding the pervasive invasion of the federal government into their daily lives. We aren’t the only ones hearing these concerns. Congressman Cory Gardner (R-Colo.) says he hears the same concerns daily from farmers and ranchers. Gardner says he is working to echo their concerns inside the Beltway.

Gardner says it is absolutely essential for farmers and ranchers to stay engaged in policy issues impacting them. He says without producer involvement, everything coming out of Washington will be void of commonsense. Gardner offers a few suggestions on how cattlemen and all farmers and ranchers can make a positive difference in Washington, D.C.
