AMI strongly disagrees with court opinion on R-CALF case

by John Gregerson on 3/4/05 for Meatingplace.com



The American Meat Institute expressed "strong disagreement" with an opinion issued yesterday by U.S. District Court Judge Richard Cebull in the case of R-CALF v. USDA Animal and Plant Health Inspection Service. (See Canadian border to remain closed, R-CALF's injunction granted, Meatingplace.com, March 2, 2005.) Cebull granted R-CALF a preliminary injunction blocking a USDA rule, slated to go into effect March 7, that would reopen the U.S. beef market to Canadian beef products and cattle under 30 months of age.

"It is regrettable that the court has accepted as fact some of the assertions included in R-CALF's pleadings. We believe that when many of these claims are subjected to full scrutiny, they will ultimately prove wrong," said AMI Senior Vice President of Regulatory Affairs and General Counsel Mark Dopp.

"An irony in this case is that R-CALF considers only its own short-term economic gains," Dopp said. "Long-term, R-CALF's strategy will backfire as Canada expands its slaughter capacity, grows its own beef production and processing capacity and becomes a competitor to the U.S. rather than a partner in what was a highly successfully, integrated North American beef industry. If this unfortunate scenario becomes a reality, R-CALF has only itself to blame."

Dopp said he eagerly awaits a ruling in AMI's separate legal action, initiated December 30, 2004, in U.S. District Court of the District of Columbia. That action challenged the continued enforcement of USDA's ban on imports of Canadian cattle 30 months of age and older. He said AMI's case is a separate and very different case based upon distinctly different issues.
