LMA's Checkoff Crusade Cost The Industry Dearly
I am distressed with the Livestock Marketing Association (LMA) and what I deem to be its uncooperative, litigation-driven response to the U.S. Supreme Court's positive ruling on the checkoff.

I did not see the LMA step up to the "plate" in the 1970s when cholesterol and fat required major scientific nutrition testing and positive image publicity.

The checkoff is the only way to spread "promotion, research and education" across the industry. Mandatory is the only fair way to keep the "shirt tailers" from feeding on the true producers.

LMA could have come to the table years ago when they were invited by the Cattlemen's Beef Board Executive Board to present their grievances innumerable times. The Board even offered to go to them to avoid spending producers' money for litigation costs.

It's too bad the loser didn't have to pay the court costs. What a waste of productive time and money.
