Cattlemen Meet in Sun Valley
This year’s theme for The Idaho Cattlemen Association is “Reclaiming our Liberty: Cattlemen United in Preserving America.
Executive Vice President of the Idaho Cattle Association Wyatt Prescott says "we really have themed it around the idea that there's not many Americans that are prouder to be an American than Cattlemen."
The cattlemen are meeting as one voice to be heard by Washington DC in hopes of preserving their way of life.
Idaho Rancher Carl Ellsworth says "there's not enough of them listening to the cattle industry in Washington, we're definitely a minority in the public eye."
Cattlemen are seeing good beef prices; however operational costs have risen as well.
