Nebraska Cattle Group Updates Policy Opposing Mandatory COOL

Nebraska Cattle Group Updates Policy Opposing Mandatory COOL

At their recent mid year meeting, Nebraska Cattlmen Association members updated their policy and are now calling for voluntary country of origin labeling and for elimination of the mandatory program.

Cattlemen’s Director of Legislative Affairs Pete McClymont says members still have time to weigh in on the policy which will again be updated in December during their state convention.

McClymont says the reason the policy was changed is that members don’t think they’re getting any financial benefit out of COOL and that recent USDA modifications will hurt trade.

McClymont says both Canada and Mexico are important customers for Nebraska and U.S. beef.
