GIPSA Proposed Rules to Market Livestock- Roy Lee Lindsey of the Oklahoma Pork Council Sees Big Problems

Thu, 29 Jul 2010 15:34:43 CDT

GIPSA Proposed Rules to Market Livestock- Roy Lee Lindsey of the Oklahoma Pork Council Sees Big Problems The so called GIPSA Marketing Rules will impact every livestock producer in the United States- and many groups believe in a very negative way. In recent weeks, we heard those for and against the rules debate over the need for additional time for comments on the sweeping proposal. Those who want the rules say all of the those against them have all of the arguments already mapped out and no more time is needed- but opponents of the rules say that USDA has overstepped their authority and that a lot more time is needed to determine how much damage may be done to all segments of the livestock industry.

We are talking to a variety of folks on this issue- and have the Executive Director of the Oklahoma Pork Council Roy Lee Lindsey with us to examine what the new rules might do to the US and Oklahoma pork industry. Lindsey is especially worried about the rule that will prohibit those who raise pigs that are owned by a processor, no matter how small, from being able to sell to any other meatpacker or processor.
