About Our Cause

If we want to keep U.S. beef the best in the world, we need ranchers and farmers to be included in the profit share.

Cattle Producers in Business.

Tri-State Livestock News is committed to helping our readers succeed. Not only in recent weeks, but every day of the year, it is our goal to ensure every bull, calf, cull cow, lamb and horse sells for a fair price. Your profitability is our focus, and through our newly introduced initiative we hope to help the industry learn, connect and make informed decisions that will establish market clarity and price discovery. It is our goal to help provide a pathway to long term financial stability for America’s livestock producers and feeders. We believe this video series, which will provide unique perspectives from the industry’s top leaders, will help find the answers we seek.
