USDA Misses Origin of Livestock Deadline

June 25, 2020

In the fiscal year 2020 appropriations bill, the USDA was given 180 days to implement the Origin of Livestock Rule. This deadline passed without the National Organic Program finalizing this important rule, which will help to level the playing field for organic dairy producers. MOFGA has advocated for this change and along with several coalition partners signed on to a letter urging action now. We'll continue to monitor this situation closely and to work to ensure this rule is fully implemented.
