NFU Opposes GIPSA Extension of Comment Period

Tue, 20 Jul 2010 17:54:35 CDT

National Farmers Union President Roger Johnson sent a letter to Ag Secretary Tom Vilsack Tuesday encouraging the Grain Inspection, Packers and Stockyards Administration to oppose extending the comment period for the proposed rule requiring USDA to improve fairness in livestock and poultry marketing. Johnson says extending the comment period into the fall calf season will give packers leverage to offer lower prices to producers as a fear mechanism. He says USDA has given a sufficient amount of time to comment on the rule - and if the department deems it necessary to extend the comment time - it should be minimal and only to meet USDA's needs.
