American Farm Bureau Cheers USDA's Withdrawal of Organic Livestock and Poultry Practices Rule

Mon, 12 Mar 2018 14:40:13 CDT

American Farm Bureau Cheers USDA's Withdrawal of Organic Livestock and Poultry Practices Rule The following statement was released by American Farm Bureau Federation President Zippy Duvall in response to USDA's decision to withdraw the Organic Livestock and Poultry Practices Rule:



“The American Farm Bureau supports USDA’s decision to withdraw the misguided Organic Livestock and Poultry Practices Rule. Livestock health and well-being is a priority for all farmers and ranchers. We rely on trained professionals, including animal scientists, nutritionists and veterinarians, to ensure the health and safety of our food. The rule did not promote food safety or animal welfare. It went beyond the intent of the Organic Production Act by allowing for animal welfare standards and metrics to become part of the organic label.



“Had the rule gone into effect, forcing organic farmers and ranchers to arbitrarily change their production practices, many would have been driven out of the organic sector or out of business entirely, reducing the supply of organic food choices for America’s consumers.



“Farm Bureau thanks Secretary Sonny Perdue for his leadership in withdrawing the Organic Livestock and Poultry Practices Rule.”
