USDA's Action to Withdraw GIPSA Rule Garners the Support of Farm Bureau President Zippy Duvall

Wed, 18 Oct 2017 11:24:15 CDT

USDA's Action to Withdraw GIPSA Rule Garners the Support of Farm Bureau President Zippy Duvall The following may be attributed to American Farm Bureau Federation President Zippy Duvall:


“The Agriculture Department has withdrawn the livestock portion of the GIPSA rule and will continue to work on poultry fair practice issues in a future rulemaking. This is good news for farmers and ranchers.


“We thank Secretary Perdue for his diligent efforts on these rules. The livestock Scope rule would have disrupted key marketing arrangements in our livestock sectors.


“As to the Unfair and Undue Preferences rule, we encourage the agency to continue to work toward solutions that protect our farmers and ranchers from unjust practices and strengthen GIPSA’s ability to enforce these issues. In particular, we urge the department to continue working to achieve more fairness for growers. The USDA can and should stop predatory practices that continue in the chicken industry.


“We look forward to working with the administration on specific measures that will ensure our growers operate in competitive markets - markets that do not include unfair, deceptive or discriminatory practices.”
