The USDA’s National Organic Program (NOP) has reopened the
comment period on the 2015 Origin of Livestock proposed
rule that attempts to prevent large, industrial dairy and cattle
operations from gaming the system. While the rule proposes positive steps, it
needs to be strengthened significantly to level the playing field for small
farmers and protect the integrity of the organic label.
Write to Congress and the NOP, demanding that the Origin of Livestock
rule is strengthened before it is completed and implemented.
Please enact a strengthened Origin of Livestock rule
