R CALF Passes Policy Backing Sheep Industry And COOL

R CALF Passes Policy Backing Sheep Industry And COOL

R CALF members wrapped up their convention in Pierre, South Dakota over the weekend by passing a resolution in support of the sheep industry. R CALF CEO Bill Bullard says the sheep industry is shrinking faster than the cattle industry and is now importing more than it produces. He says they’re also producing for less than the cost of production meaning immediate help is needed if they are going to survive.

Bullard says another important policy R CALF is pursuing is defense of country of origin labeling against the lawsuit by nine meat groups seeking to dismantle it. He says they intend to intervene in the case in the near future.

He says their best argument in defending country of origin labeling is the right of consumers to know where their food comes from.

Bullard says during the convention R CALF held a fund drive and raised over $ 15,000 to be used in the COOL litigation.
