Global Roundtable for Sustainable Beef Critic to Speak at OISA's Monthly Meeting January 27 in OKCMon, 22 Jan 2018 11:49:20 CST
The Oklahoma Independent Stockgrowers Group (OISA) is set to hold their monthly meeting in Oklahoma City, January 27th, 2018.
Elisabeth Erickson-Noe will be the speaker. Noe will speak at 6:00 p.m. at the Saddleback Inn & Conference Center.
Noe is a 5th generation rancher from Colorado & California and will be speaking on the Global Roundtable for Sustainable Beef & the negative affect it will have upon producer's freedom to market their cattle & the hidden agenda for private property rights to be removed.
Elisabeth Erickson-Noe ranches in Southeastern Colorado with her husband Kirk where they enjoy raising their young children in the western way of life. Branding season is her favorite time of year, continuing in her family's tradition of heading and heeling calves. She enjoys spending time with her family roping, swimming, skiing and training show jumping horses. An article written by Noe and published in the Fort Morgan Times will give a overview on the overreach that American producers are facing. Click here to read full text.
An update from Linda Murphy, voluntary educator and concerned citizen will update members on the proposed placard bill. Oklahoma citizens deserve to know where their food comes from. Oklahoma ranchers deserve a label to separate their beef from the rest of the world. An Oklahoma Beef Placard Bill would require retailers to distinguish foreign beef from US beef.
"There has never been more urgent of a time to get involved. Our private property rights are being threatened by the Global Roundtable For Sustainable Beef & producers need to be educating themselves. Our long established state cattlemens group has already adopted the US Roundtable for Sustainable Beef policies as part of Oklahoma Policy and that should cause great concern to every producer in Oklahoma whose livelihood depends on cattle. The United Nations & WWF is behind these regulations & we don't want to succeed our sovereignty. We believe American producers should have the liberty to produce the way they see fit. This is not about sustainability...this is about control." Brad Hutchison, The Chain Ranch, Board Chairman, OISA.
