CURRENT WORKS 

A key project the California Cattle Council is currently investing in is communicating that now is the time to act to improve land management practices and increase grazing and prescribed fire to reduce wildfires. These efforts are being driven by a digital media campaign directing audiences to www.calresilient.com, plus coverage in major media outlets. Look for more details on those results to come soon, but in the meantime check out some of the previous works we’ve invested in below.

ADVOCACY

2020 RESILIENCE DIGITAL CAMPAIGN

This campaign launched to reassure consumers that California’s cattle producers were still a well-positioned to still produce an ample beef at the onset of the COVID-19 pandemic. From there, it took off to highlight sustainability and later educate on the disastrous impacts of changing longtime property tax laws.
