Minnesota Cattlemen Want Neutral Stance On RFS

Minnesota Cattlemen Want Neutral Stance On RFS

The National Cattlemen’s Beef Association along with the National Turkey and Chicken groups are backing legislation in the Senate to get the Renewable Fuel Standard repealed. Minnesota Cattlemen’s Association however is distancing itself from NCBA by taking a middle of the ground approach on the issue. President Dar Geiss says many of his group’s members raise cattle as well as grow corn.

Geiss says while producers have faced high feed costs they also benefit from the dried distillers grains as an alternative feed source.

NCBA and the Turkey and Chicken groups are concerned that 40 percent of the corn crop goes towards renewables putting pressure on their industries.
