Ron Hays Talks Labeling of Fake Meat in Oklahoma With OCA's Michael Kelsey After Governor Stitt Signs SB392 into LawSun, 28 Apr 2019 17:31:22 CDT
Oklahoma Governor Kevin Stitt signed Senate Bill 392 on Friday- setting the stage for Oklahoma to have very specific rules on what cell based meat products can be called at retail in Oklahoma once they reach the market place sometime in the future. The bill patterns a law that was put into place a year ago in Missouri. At that time, MCA Executive Vice President Mike Deering predicted more states will follow the lead of Missouri.
“This isn't a Missouri issue. This is about protecting the integrity of the products that farm and ranch families throughout the country work hard to raise each and every day,” Deering says. “I never imagined we would be fighting over what is and isn't meat. It seems silly. However, this is very real and I cannot stress enough the importance of this issue. We are beyond pleased to see this priority legislation cross the finish-line.”
Over the weekend, Radio Oklahoma Ag Network Farm Director Ron Hays talked with the Executive Vice President of the Oklahoma Cattlemen's Association, Michael Kelsey, about the measure and why cattle producers in the state are pleased to have this proactive measure in place.
