KEY ISSUES

CCA WINS IN 2019

With your support, The California Cattlemen’s Association scored some major victories in 2019.

  • Successfully opposed SB 1, which sought to require California to meet or exceed all federal environmental regulations which were in place prior to President Trump’s term in office

  • Defeated an effort to reinstate the California Estate Tax

  • Successfully defended federal lands permittees’ rights to graze on public lands in a lawsuit brought by the Central Sierra Environmental Resource Center challenging grazing on the Stanislaus National Forest

  • Defeated legislation that attempted to replace beef in school lunches with vegan options

  • Secured agricultural exemptions for permitting requirements under California’s Waters of the State Rule and successfully advocated for the repeal of the 2015 Waters of the U.S. (WOTUS) Rule

  • Ensured modernization of the Endangered Species Act, including reforms to critical habitat designations and the repeal of the “blanket 4(d) rule,” which extended endangered species protections to most species listed as threatened

Our work is far from complete, and we remain committed to advocating for ranching in Sacramento and Washington, DC. on the following issues, as well as others.

MEMBER BENEFITS

By being a CCA member, you play an integral role in protecting California’s ranching heritage, while gaining additional members-only benefits.

WHY CALIFORNIA NEEDS CATTLE

Today, California’s ranching families are as diverse as any in the world. Ranchers own and/or manage approximately 38 million acres of privately and publicly owned rangelands.

Most California ranches have been in the same family for four or more generations. The long-term success of ranching operations requires the careful stewardship of animals and the environment.

California rangelands provide habitat for hundreds of species, endangered and nonendangered, many of which depend on grazing for their habitat.
