U.S. Cattlemen's Association Commends White House's Action Plan to Restore Competition in the U.S. Cattle Industry

Mon, 03 Jan 2022 15:53:16 CST

U.S. Cattlemen's Association Commends White House's Action Plan to Restore Competition in the U.S. Cattle Industry On Monday, the Biden-Harris Administration published its Action Plan for a Fairer, More Competitive, and More Resilient Meat and Poultry Supply Chain. The four core strategies that make up the Action Plan seek to strengthen the bottom line of independent producers and processors, while also providing more choices and affordable prices for U.S. consumers.

The United States Cattlemen's Association (USCA) participated in several stakeholder meetings and public comment opportunities last year, which helped White House officials formulate this Action Plan. USCA also assisted Congressional leaders like Senators Jon Tester (D-MT), Ron Wyden (D-OR), Deb Fischer (R-NE), Chuck Grassley (R-IA), John Thune (R-SD), Mike Rounds (R-SD) and others, in drafting provisions that are included within this Action Plan.

USCA President Brooke Miller issued the following statement:

"Today's announcement puts into motion what our members have, for years, urged action on - empowering the independent producer and processor to create a more robust and resilient food system.

"USCA commends the Biden-Harris Administration for its persistence in working to restore competition throughout the U.S. economy. We are hopeful that the Action Plan unveiled today will help bring transparency and true price discovery to the cattle marketplace, bring back truth in labeling through the closure of the Product of the U.S.A. loophole, and invest in a stronger - and more American - meat industry. We look forward to working with the Administration to implement the provisions outlined in this Action Plan."
