They had better study getting rid of the death tax, this will cause more hardship than the tax. No one gets the step up basis, therefore kids will not be able to sell the ranch if they decide they don't want to ranch anymore. Uncle Sam will take more in capital gains than they would have in the death tax.


The research-was it paid for by the check-off.

The M'price reporting SH was cussing that R-calf pushed it. hmmm

Other they seem to do good on some of it.

Membership Challenge


At the recently concluded NCBA summer meeting, NCBA Membership Committee Chairman, Harry Knobbe, and the NCBA Executive Committee challenged the membership and the Board of Directors to recruit at least 1,000 new members by the end of September. To help you meet that challenge, we have put a report card together in this update. Remember, recruit 3 new members and you will become a Top Hand Club member and we will honor you with a reception at the annual convention. Recruit 10 and you will be awarded a Schaefer Jacket.

Your NCBA is in the court of public opinion and the court of public policy everyday working on all the issues that affect your business and opportunity for profitability.

Here is a sampling of the issues NCBA has addressed this year:

Death Tax – NCBA took the lead to get permanent repeal of the death tax passed out of the House of Representatives. NCBA will be in the lead to get it passed through the Senate in September.
Trade – NCBA was the lead in getting a provision in the House Ag Appropriations bill to direct APHIS to spend more resources on getting foreign markets opened to U.S. breeding stock rather than working to get other countries certified to export to the U.S.
Trade – NCBA has lead the effort with the current Administration to successfully reopen 69 export markets for our product that were closed on December 23, 2003. NCBA is continuing to strongly urge the Administration to work to reopen markets with our Asian trading partners, including Japan.
Trade – NCBA was a key player in getting CAFTA-DR passed and signed to remove tariffs on prime and choice beef for export to Central America immediately.
Research – NCBA supported full funding for BSE research that was included in both the House and Senate appropriations bills.
Research – NCBA had a provision included in the House appropriations bill that directs ARS to complete a study on the dietary benefits of lean beef.
Research – Both appropriations bills contain full funding for the completion of the National Veterinary Services Lab in Ames, IA.
Marketing – NCBA was the lead in getting mandatory price reporting reauthorized for 5 years in the House and will be the lead in getting it reauthorized in the Senate in September.
Animal ID – The Senate Ag Appropriations bill directs USDA to work with private industry in the development of the National Animal ID System.
Environment – NCBA and PLC continue to work with Chairman Richard Pombo to pass significant Endangered Species Act reform this session.
Environment – NCBA and PLC successfully got $5 million designated for sage grouse habitat conservation and U.S. Fish and Wildlife has determined the greater sage grouse does not warrant protection under the Endangered Species Act.
Federal Lands – NCBA and PLC continue to work to defeat passage of permit buy-out legislation.
Federal Lands – NCBA and PLC worked to enact legislation authorizing BLM to sell un-adoptable horses and burros.
Federal Lands – NCBA and PLC, working with the Forest Service maintained the use of herbicides to control rangeland weeds.
Federal Lands – Through the work of NCBA and PLC, restoring grazing on the Tonto National Forest and the Pend O’Reille National Wildlife Refuge has been made easier.

{Rancher, why would you suspect checkoff money might have paid for this? It absolutely cannot be, and is not, used for anything not in the law creating the checkoff! And certainly is not used by the Policy Division of NCBA. MRJ}

The M'price reporting SH was cussing that R-calf pushed it. hmmm

{personally, I believe that this was not good, and believe that very few people use it, possibly because more information is available from private sources. MRJ}

Weren't there people CRITICIZING AND BWAMING R-CALF for "recruiting" and "awarding for memberships."

I guess it worked so damned good that NCBA (after losing many memberships) decided to do the same damned thing. GO FIGURE!!!

NO R-CALF was just signing up people for every $50 dollars that was raised. I would bet that it might cost a little more to join NCBA.

Chief: "Weren't there people CRITICIZING AND BWAMING R-CALF for "recruiting" and "awarding for memberships.""

I don't recall!

I just remember people criticizing R-CULT for lying to producers.

Lying about packer profits and market manipulation.
Lying about the relevance of the retail to fat cattle price spread.
Lying about captive supplies
Lying about the safety of Canadian cattle
Lying about the economic impact of Canadian cattle on our markets.
Just basically lying about every issue they are involved in.


You mean that criticism?

{Maybe you need to check the facts. Who have you seen criticize any legitimate, cattle producer members added to any organization by soliciting their dues?

BTW, NCBA has had membership drives for many, many years, and has given small prizes to those soliciting the most members. And those members are either cattle producers or allied businesses wanting access to, or to give support to NCBA members.

{What sort of 'fishing' expedition are you on here, rancher?

Are you saying that there is abuse of checkoff money related to "research" in relation to "the death tax"?

IMO, if that is your premise, it is up to you to show us proof.

No MRJ, you are the one with the black helicopter attitude. I want to know your feelings of losing the stepped up basis on capital gains that losing the death tax will cause. It is worse than the death tax.

I want to know why NCBA lists all the reseach etc. under what NCBA does with no mention of the check-off paying for it. Was it an error of the public relations department of NCBA that it was not included?
