Economic Impact of Country of Origin Labeling- 2014 Farm Law Mandated ReportTue, 12 May 2015 03:57:55 CDT
The 2014 Farm Bill directed USDA's Office of the Chief Economist (OCE) to conduct an economic analysis of its 2009 and 2013 country of origin labeling (COOL) rules. To help meet that directive, OCE contracted with a group of qualified agricultural economists with expertise in livestock marketing issues to conduct a study on the economic impacts of COOL on consumers, producers, and packers in the United States.
The study team consisted of Drs. Glynn Tonsor and Ted Schroeder at Kansas State University , and Dr. Joe Parcell at the University of Missouri. Their study considered both the 2009 and 2013 USDA final labeling rules on the U.S. beef, pork, and poultry markets , as required by the 2014 Farm Bill directive.
