AFBF President Zippy Duvall Says GIPSA Delay Shows "A One-Siz Fits All" Approach Won't Work

Tue, 11 Apr 2017 14:56:22 CDT

AFBF President Zippy Duvall Says GIPSA Delay Shows The following may be attributed to American Farm Bureau Federation President Zippy Duvall: “It is clear that a one-size-fits-all approach to the Agriculture Department’s Farmer Fair Practices Rules does not work across the board for all livestock sectors. The announced delay in the rules’ effective date until October will give farmers and ranchers additional time to comment on this important issue.



“We support preserving the contract and marketing arrangements that are working for the beef and pork sectors, and we will reinforce that point during the comment period. There is still vast room for improvement, however, in efforts to ensure a level playing field for poultry farmers. We will continue to emphasize the need to seek additional safeguards in the poultry sector to better protect individual farmers from discriminatory treatment, without disrupting the business practices that are working in the beef and pork sectors.”
