Canadian Cattlemen Feeling Negative Impacts Of COOL

Canadian Cattlemen Feeling Negative Impacts Of COOL

Canadian cattle producers are starting to feel the negative effects of the rewritten U.S. Country of Origin Labeling law.  Canadian Cattlemen’s Director of Government and International Relations John Masswohl says the new U.S. COOL rule will be enforced in November and when that happens, co -mingling of U.S. and Canadian cattle will no longer be allowed which will cause further economic loss to Canada’s producers.

Masswohl says what’s more alarming is that eventually packers won’t take Canadian cattle at all.

He says his group continues to work with U.S. processors in fighting the new U.S. COOL rule in the courts and is in the appeals process seeking a preliminary injunction to stop the regulation.
