California rancher discusses 10-year struggle to pay death tax
The National Cattlemen’s Beef Association has kicked off a media and advertising campaign that will shine a spotlight on how the death tax impacts America’s cattle and beef producers. The first campaign video features fifth-generation California rancher Kevin Kester, whose family struggled for a decade to pay a large death-tax bill after his grandfather passed away.
“Without a doubt the biggest challenge that keeps me up at night is trying to figure out how to pass the ranching operation – our family operation on to the next generation,” Kester says in the video as he drives across his Bear Valley Ranch near Parkfield, California.
The campaign is centered around a new website, CattlemenForTaxReform.com, and will run through September.
