NCBA Official Says Government Opening Helps Improve Market Information

NCBA Official Says Government Opening Helps Improve Market Information

Wednesday night Congress approved a bi partisan deal to raise the debt limit and re open the government after a 16 day shut down.  National Cattlemen Beef Association’s Vice President of Government Affairs Colin Woodall says that’s good news for cattle producers as now needed market information will be flowing again.

Woodall thinks the disaster in Western South Dakota earlier this month that killed many thousands of livestock helped prompt lawmakers to re open the government.

He says legislators finally understood that having the government open is bigger than any political agenda, that the shutdown impacted people’s livelihood.
