There are still some key Agriculture issues facing congress ahead of the midterm elections in November. Some may get handled ahead of election day, while other will certainly not.

One of those big issues has to do with livestock transportation. The National Cattlemen Beef Association's Alison Rivera gives us an update on the issue..

And she says the NCBA is also working hard on another key issues.

Recently, the U.S. Department of the Interior proposed a modest reform for the Endangered Species Act.

As a species recovers, relaxed regulations will reward property owners for their role in that recovery.
