OCM Says They’ll Take OIG To Court Over Beef Check Off Information

Organization for Competitive Market members just wrapped up their convention in Kansas City and are pushing for getting NCBA removed as a contractor for the beef checkoff. OCM President Mike Callicrate says they’re also going after the cattlemen’s group for alleged misuse of check off funding. He says they’ll be taking the Office of Inspector General to Court in order to receive information sought in an investigation.

Callicrate says also at their convention they heard from former Obama supporter Dave Murphy with Food Democracy Now.  Callicrate notes Murphy is criticizing current Ag Secretary Tom Vilsack for failing to accomplish many objectives.

He says Murphy worked for President Obama during this first term and at that time was a supporter of Ag Secretary Tom Vilsack.
