Stress Assistance Program (WRASAP)
Nevada Cattlemen’s Association
The Nevada Cattlemen’s Association is a non-profit trade association that was established in 1935. We provide a means for Nevada’s cattle industry to present a united front on issues that impact us all.
Our mission is to promote a dynamic and profitable Nevada beef industry which represents the interests of its producers and consistently meets the consumer’s needs while increasing Nevada’s market share.
The Association works hard to protect private property, vested water and grazing rights. We achieve this through increased public awareness of our industry, and agriculture in general.

WSDA Office of Compliance and Outreach
The WA legislature eliminated funding for the Small Farm & Direct Marketing Program at the Washington State Dept. of Agriculture as of June 30, 2011. The knowledgeable staff from that program have been retained within the agency, now serving as Education & Outreach Specialists for the Office of Compliance and Outreach in the Food Safety and Consumer Services Division. We continue to strive to assist farmers and food processors with regulatory issues as well as education around food safety and compliance. Thanks to federal grant funding we are also active in Farm to School and Value-added Processing workshops. www.agr.wa.gov;
