The Uebelacker Family

Camas and Gretchen Uebelacker feed cattle in Othello, Wash. They are first generation cattle feeders raising their kids Piper and Ryder at their home right on the farm.

Our Community Approach

The Washington Cattle Feeders Association takes a community approach to issues facing the beef industry in our state. That’s because our industry covers the entire chain of beef production, from the feedlot to the family dinner table. With this in mind, we are dedicated advocates for our entire community: Washington’s cattle feeders and the thousands of small family ranches we support throughout the state, the over 14,000 hardworking industry workers, and the consumers who expect and deserve the highest quality product possible.

We’ve been taking this broad-based, inclusive approach for decades, developing a strong working relationship with the Department of Ecology to establish reasonable guidelines and best management practices, always advocating for cattle feeders and the Washington beef industry along the way.
