US Cattlemen's Association Disappointed by USDA's Announcement It Will Withdraw the GIPSA Rule

Tue, 17 Oct 2017 14:23:41 CDT

US Cattlemen's Association Disappointed by USDA's Announcement It Will Withdraw the GIPSA Rule The United States Cattlemen’s Association (USCA) responded to today’s announcement that the United States Department of Agriculture (USDA) will withdraw the Grain Inspection, Packers and Stockyards Administration (GIPSA) Interim Final Rule regarding the Scope of Sections 202 (a) and (b) of the Packers and Stockyards Act. The following statement may be attributed to USCA President Kenny Graner:



“USCA is disappointed in today’s announcement. The proposed and interim rules sought to maintain competition in the marketplace; withdrawing the rule is a win for multi-national packers and fails to put U.S. cattle producers first.”



“USCA has been committed to seeing through necessary clarifications to the Packers and Stockyards Act and a withdrawal of the rule does not solve the problems in today’s marketplace. Anti-competitive buying practices and the lack of true price discovery remain critical issues to our industry and ones that must be addressed.”



“The issues remain the same, regardless of today’s announcement, and USCA will look to work with industry, Congress, and the Administration on addressing the loopholes still remaining by the result of withdrawing the rule.”
