USDA Publishes Organic Livestock and Poultry Standards Proposed Rule

Fri, 05 Aug 2022 14:31:47 CDT

Today, the U.S. Department of Agriculture (USDA) previewed the Organic Livestock and Poultry Standards (OLPS) proposed rule in the Federal Register. With this publication, USDA proposes requirements for organic poultry and livestock living conditions, care, transport, and slaughter.


“This proposed Organic Livestock and Poultry Standards rule demonstrates USDA’s strong commitment to America’s organic producers,” said Agriculture Secretary Tom Vilsack. “We encourage producers, processors, and consumers to submit written comments about the rule so that we can work together to create a fairer, more competitive, and transparent food system.”


“This rulemaking is an opportunity to ensure consumers’ expectations align with the enforced organic standards, building trust across the supply chain and leveling the playing field for producers,” said Under Secretary for Marketing and Regulatory Programs Jenny Lester Moffitt. “With this proposed rule, USDA is seeking to establish and clarify clear standards for organic livestock and poultry production.”


When finalized, USDA’s National Organic Program (NOP) will oversee the rule’s implementation. Read the full USDA Press Release.


NOP will also host a public webinar listening session on August 19, 2022, to hear oral comments on the proposed rule. Learn more at this link inlcuding links to the Federal Register announcement, how to access the webinar, submitting written comments, and signing up to make oral comments at the webinar.
