R-CALF Cattle Update: Disappointment In Court Ruling

“We are disappointed in today’s ruling by the 9th S. Circuit Court of Appeals. The 9th Circuit gave no reasons for their action, so there isn’t much we can do until we see those reasons.

“R-CALF USA remains confident that USDA’s Final Rule was not justified, and that USDA did not provide significant justification for overturning a longstanding policy that protected both the U.S. cattle herd and U.S. consumers from the introduction of BSE.

“USDA’s Final Rule is based merely on a reinterpretation of existing science that has been around for years. USDA is motivated by political considerations of wanting to resume trade with Canada.

“R-CALF is confident that when we have a full hearing on the merits of the case, we will demonstrate to the district court that USDA’s actions are premature and unjustified.

“This decision makes mandatory COOL all the more important so consumers will know where their beef comes from.”
