NCBA at Odds With Partnership

Tue, 31 Aug 2010 17:06:47 CDT

The Ranchers-Cattlemen Action Legal Fund and Food and Water Watch are joining forces to support the Department of Agriculture's Grain Inspection, Packers and Stockyard Administration's proposed rule on livestock marketing. Representatives of the National Cattlemen's Beef Association are questioning the partnership between the animal rights and environmental activist groups.

NCBA President Steve Foglesong says well-funded activist groups, like Food and Water Watch, are working to obstruct the success of U.S. agriculture and its efforts to feed a growing global population. He said Food and Water Watch, a lobbyist group, - has a longstanding history of lobbying for stringed agricultural regulations that are devoid of science. Foglesong says - as a cattle producer, it is concerning that an organization in my industry is admittedly partnering with a group that spreads fiction as fact to 98 percent of the population removed from production agriculture.

Foglesong says - this industry can disagree that's how progress is achieved but to blatantly misrepresent the hardworking men and women in this industry is something that we cannot take lightly.
