Elisabeth Erickson-Noe Sees No Good Thing Coming to Cattle Producers From Any Association With Jason Clay and the World Wildlife FundMon, 29 Jan 2018 08:41:21 CST
The recently formed Oklahoma Independent Stockgrowers Association has been organized around one major issue- the fear of mandates on cattle production coming from the Global Roundtable for Sustainable Beef and the US Roundatable for Sustainable Beef. And according to a guest speaker that the OISA had at their January meeting held in Oklahoma City, Elisabeth Erickson Noe, the primary driver of the GRSB and the USRSB is the agenda of the World Wildlife Fund as articulated by Jason Clay. Ahead of her presentation, attended by a small group of cattle producers this past Saturday night, Radio Oklahoma Ag Network Farm Director Ron Hays talked with the southeast Colorado rancher- who returned multiple times in their conversation to the behind the scenes efforts of Clay in forcing the cattle industry to adopt production practices dictated by major users of beef- practices that she believes could force many producers out of business and ultimately reduce beef production and consumption in the US and around the world. Those practices would all come from the playbook of the World Wildlife Fund and their desire to reduce beef cattle production and consumption drastically.
Noe says that Clay and the World Wildlife Fund consider today's beef production as being detrimental to global sustainability- saying "beef is one of fifteen commodities that is the greatest threat to our enviornment- to our globe- citing the air pollution as well as degrading the planet- affecting adversely biodiversity."
Noe believes that it is totally unacceptable for any cattle organization to have anything to do with groups like the Global Roundtable and the US Roundtable because of their ties with Clay and the WWF.
