Nebraska Stockgrowers began in 1888 and later merged with Nebraska Livestock Feeders Association, and Nebraska Feedlot Council to form Nebraska Cattlemen in 1988. Nebraska Cattlemen is a grass roots membership policy organization – governed by the NC Board of Directors and committed to protecting the interests of Nebraska’s beef cattle producers at the local, state, and federal level. Nebraska Cattlemen’s mission is to work on behalf of Nebraska cattle producers– pasture to plate.


  • Provide a strong voice for the cattle community at the local, state, and federal levels
  • Promote policies to protect Nebraska beef producers’ freedom to operate and improve their prospects for prosperity, sustainability, and profitability
  • Provide necessary resources to members in their continuing quest to be world-class beef producers


The Nebraska Cattlemen Political Action Committee (NC-PAC) is our most important tool for defending the beef cattle industry from overreach and overregulation in Nebraska. NC-PAC pools contributions from Nebraska Cattlemen members to support candidates who defend the beef cattle industry in Nebraska. Cattle producers in Nebraska need pro-business, pro-agriculture representation at the capitol in Lincoln.

Nebraska Cattlemen hosts several fundraiser events to raise funds for the NC-PAC. If you would like more information on any of these events or want to donate please contact the Lincoln Nebraska Cattlemen office.



The Nebraska Cattleman is the official publication of Nebraska Cattlemen. The Nebraska Cattleman is a color, high-resolution magazine that is published ten times a year and the first of every month (except May and July) and sent to nearly 80% of all beef producers in Nebraska. 

Editorial features emphasize business management and include topics such as marketing, genetics, nutrition, forage and pasture management, and animal health. Editorial also includes personality profiles, coverage of Nebraska Cattlemen activities and comments on issues important to cattlemen in Nebraska.
