GIPSA Rule Comment Period Extended

Mon, 26 Jul 2010 17:47:02 CDT

USDA has extended - for another 90 days - the comment period to the Grain Inspection, Packers and Stockyards Administration's proposed rule on livestock marketing. Announced June 18th - the proposed rule suggests major changes to the way producers can market their cattle. Secretary of Agriculture Tom Vilsack called the proposal one of the most sweeping reforms of the Packers and Stockyards Act. President of the National Cattlemen's Beef Association and Illinois cattle producer Steve Foglesong says as such - it's extremely important that we thoroughly understand the rule and both its intended and unintended consequences on the U.S. cattle community.


Colin Woodall - Vice President of Government Affairs for NCBA - says on the surface - this rule has the potential to take the beef industry back 30 years by stifling the innovative efforts of U.S. cattle producers to add value and enhance the quality and safety of their products for consumers in the United States and abroad.


During a House Agriculture subcommittee hearing last week - Democrats and Republicans expressed to USDA that the scope of the proposed rule goes well beyond what Congress intended under the 2008 Farm Bill.
