This week the Florida Cattlemen’s Association (FCA) held their annual Legislative Quarterly in Tallahassee, which included their Boots on the Hill event. FCA Director of Governmental Affairs, Sam Ard, says they had really good feedback from the legislators they met with. He also discusses the new report from the University of Florida/IFAS showing just how important beef and dairy production have become to the state’s economy.
