I believe we are at a similar point...

... that the late W.D. Farr was 35 years ago when his vision directed us to move forward with the National Cattlemen’s Foundation. The next 35 years will be as exciting as the past. We want you to join us on this valuable journey in preserving the cattlemen’s legacy.
