OCM Wants NCBA Removed As Beef Checkoff Contractor

OCM Wants NCBA Removed As Beef Checkoff Contractor

The Organization of Competitive Markets wants the Cattlemen’s Beef Board to remove the National Cattlemen’s Beef Association as a contractor for the beef check off..  O-C-M President Mike Callicrate says NCBA’s opposition to the Country of Origin Labeling law and its taking part in a lawsuit with 8 other meat groups to get rid of it violates what they’re suppose to be doing.

Callicrate says it’s not right for a beef check off contractor to use producers’ money against them rather than for them through proper research and promotion programs.

Callicrate says NCBA is violating their contract with the beef board by taking part on the COOL litigation.

OCM will be talking about this issue at their convention Friday in Kansas City.
