NCBA Remains Dedicated to Eliminating a Livestock Title in the 2012 Farm Bill

NCBA Remains Dedicated to Eliminating a Livestock Title in the 2012 Farm Bill

There is still no resolution in the farm bill negotiations between House Ag Committee Chairman Frank Lucas of Oklahoma and Senate Ag Committee Chairlady Debbie Stabenow. As everyoine in agriculture continues to sit, watch for any hints of breakthrough and worry about how the outcome will impact their slice of agriculture- we talked about the farm bill issues with the Vice President for Government Affairs of the National Cattlemen's Beef Association, Colin Woodall.

Woodall says his organization is not a big fan of the Livestock Indemnity Program- and will not fight to continue it if their opinion is asked.

They are actively opposing having any Livestock Title in the 2012 bill- saying little if any good came out of the title in the 2008 farm law. In fact, Woodall says several negatives surfaced from it- most notably the GIPSA marketing rule which has sharply divided the US livestock industry.

Woodall is our guest today on the Beef Buzz- and we also talked about GIPSA and the NCBA's fears that there will still be lot of damage caused by the GIPSA Rule when USDA moves forward with the parts of the rule they say they need more time to consider. That part of the rule includes the provisions that could redefine competitve injury in the livestock business.

The Beef Buzz is a regular feature heard on radio stations around the region on the Radio Oklahoma Network- but is also a regular audio feature found on this website as well.
