Talking RFS Waiver and a PREVIEW of the OCA Convention with Scott Dewald

Mon, 28 Jul 2008 7:14:16 CDT

Talking RFS Waiver and a PREVIEW of the OCA Convention with Scott Dewald We talked with Scott Dewald of the Oklahoma Cattlemen's's Association about a couple of topics this past Friday- including the Waiver request of the RFS by three Oklahoma livestock groups- as well as visiting with him about a preview of the OCA Convention and trade show- our coverage of that event that will be beginning this coming Thursday and brought to you in part by Hudson Livestock Supplements.

On the waiver request, the pork, beef and poultry industries have banded together in putting a request on the Governor's desk that he join Texas Governor Rick Perry in asking the EPA for a waiver on the Renewable Fuel Standard. Dewald says the numbers they have run have shown a 779 million dollar hit on Oklahoma livestock entities because of high feed grain prices. He admits that ethanol can not be blamed for all of the increase in feed grain costs- but he says this is one of the few items where we can make an adjustment in the government mandate on the amount of ethanol that has to go into in the US fuel supply.

On the upcoming convention- Dewald says it will be a dandy- as they get more comfortable in the Reed Center in Midwest City. This will be year two for the convention in this venue- and while they had to share the facility last year- crowding the trade show a great deal- here in 2008- the OCA has both the upstairs and downstairs- making for much better traffic flow and a more organized trade show for cattle producers to enjoy. They have an excellent program as well- and we have our conversation with Scott for you below- just click on the listen bar.

And here's the link for OCA Convention info from their website.
