NAT'L CATTLEMEN'S BEEF ASSN APPLAUDS USDA'S WITHDRAWAL OF ORGANIC MARKETING RULE
Source: Nat'l Cattlemen's Beef Assn news release

National Cattlemen's Beef Association President Kevin Kester today issued the following statement regarding the announcement from the U.S. Department of Agriculture that it is withdrawing its Organic Livestock and Poultry Practices (OLPP) final rule:

"Common sense scored an all-too-rare victory in Washington, DC, today. Not only did USDA not have the legal authority to implement animal-welfare regulations, but the rule would have also vilified conventionally raised livestock without recognizing our commitment to raise all cattle humanely, regardless of the marketing program they're in. Secretary Sonny Perdue deserves a lot of credit for yet another common-sense decision that will benefit America's cattle producers."
