The USDA has launched its Cattle Contract Library.
Tanner Beymer with the National Cattlemen’s Beef Association says it has the potential to be a great resource for producers. But it is a pilot program. “A pilot program is designed to poke holes in,” he says. “It’s designed to evaluate in a way that people intended for it to function.”
He tells Brownfield over the course of the next few months NCBA and its members will closely review the program, making sure confidentiality is protected and ensuring the program provides useful information to producers.
