USCA Announces Independent Beef Producer and Processor’s Online Directory

The U.S. Cattlemen’s Association Tuesday announced the Independent Beef Producer and Processor’s online directory. The network is intended to be a resource for those seeking new connections within the industry. The directory is for producers looking for regional processors, processors seeking local producers and consumers interested in sourcing local beef. USCA Independent Processors Committee Chairman Patrick Robinette says, “This directory has been a priority for the USCA processing committee as consumers continue to seek out local beef options and producers continue to explore efficient and affordable ways to get it to them.” To register as a producer or processor, head to uscattlemen.org to find more information and the application link. You must be a U.S. Cattlemen’s Association member to post to the directory. In January, the Biden administration unveiled its Action Plan for a Fairer, More Competitive, and More Resilient Meat and Poultry Supply Chain. USCA supports the Action Plan, which included a $1 billion investment in independent processing capacity.
