CCA WINS IN 2023

The ongoing support of California’s ranching community is key to CCA’s success. Together we are making a difference. With your help, we secured major victories last year, including:

  • Defeating legislation which sought to empower radical animal rights groups to sue ranchers in civil court, a measure which could have resulted in harassment against livestock producers or judicially redefining what constitutes animal ‘abuse.’

  • Securing funds in the 2023-24 state budget for grazing and grazing infrastructure, reflecting lawmakers’ recognition of grazing as a tool for managing fire fuels.

  • Defeating or favorably amending a trio of bills that would have fundamentally undermined California’s water rights priority system and vastly expanded the powers of the State Water Resources Control Board.

  • Defeating a proposal – not backed by sound science or market realities – to mandate methane-emissions-reducing feed additives in beef cattle diets.

  • Achieving widespread State recognition of the ecological benefits of livestock grazing, which have been cited by the California Air Resources Board, Natural Resources Secretary and countless other lawmakers and regulators.

Our work is far from complete, and we remain committed to advocating for ranching in Sacramento and Washington, DC. With your help and resilience, we will be laser-focused on achieving more victories throughout 2024.
