Litigation May Offer Best Hope to Short Circuit GIPSA Proposed Rule

Today's Beef Buzz continues our conversation with Colin Woodall of the National Cattlemen's Beef Association- who disagrees with R-Calf and OEM about the help they claim will come from the GIPSA Marketing Rule on Livsetock that they want to see finalized and effectively become the law of the land through regulation.

R-Calf and others who support the GIPSA Proposal claim that small producers will be protected against the packers with this rule- but Woodall contends that those smaller producers will lose out, because many of the premiums that are paid for value added cattle may dry up and go away. Some of the major value added programs in the country have broken down the stats of the size of their participants- and large numbers of smaller producers take advantage of these programs and walk away with more than the market for their animals.

Woodall adds that he believes that GIPSA Administrator, Dudley Butler, has no intention of paying attention to any comments submitted and that USDA will publish a final rule within a few days after the end of the public comment period on November 22, 2010. He says those that oppose the rule will likely have little choice but to seek relief through court action.

We invite to our website, where we developed a GIPSA Marketing Rule PRIMER a few weeks back that includes links to the Rule, USDA's Clarification and Justification of the Rule, the Industry's take on the Rule- Pro and Con as well as how you submit your comments to USDA.Click here for our website page that gives a world of information about the GIPSA Rule- we call it Read the Rule.

The Beef Buzz is a regular feature heard on radio stations around the state on the Radio Oklahoma Network- but is also a regular audio feature found on this website as well.
