USCA Announces Support for Farm Bill and Urges Congressional Passage

USCA Announces Support for Farm Bill and Urges Congressional Passage
The United States Cattlemen's Association (USCA) extended its appreciation to House and Senate Agriculture Committee members and staff for their work to bring a comprehensive farm bill before Congress for final passage.

USCA President Jon Wooster, San Lucas, California, stated that the association commends the work of Senate Agriculture Committee Chairwoman Debbie Stabenow (D-MI), House Agriculture Committee Chairman Frank Lucas (R-OK), Ranking Member Thad Cochran (R-MS), and Ranking Member Collin Peterson (D-MN) in providing the nation's farmers and ranchers with legislation that allows for certainty in planning for the years to come.

"USCA is very pleased that policy-makers made the decision not to intervene in the U.S. country of origin labeling (COOL) program, which will allow the World Trade Organization (WTO) process to proceed appropriately. We are also pleased that additional restrictions concerning revisions to the Grain Inspection Packers and Stockyards Act (GIPSA) will not be authorized. This bill delivers necessary livestock disaster assistance and other support programs that producers have waited patiently for despite weather-related catastrophes. USCA urges swift, bipartisan passage of this farm bill."

USCA Executive Vice President Jess Peterson commented further on the bill, "Production agriculture, along with consumers who benefit from a healthy and affordable food supply, are all winners today thanks to the Farm Bill principals. The U.S. Cattlemen's Association urges the House and Senate to pass this bill as to allow for a quick signature and final seal of approval by President Obama."
