South Dakota Stock Growers Disappointed With Voluntary Call For COOL

South Dakota Stock Grower officials are disappointed to hear of Iowa Farm Bureau’s policy calling for moving Country of Origin Labeling from Mandatory to Voluntary Status.  Stock Growers Executive Director Silvia Christen says that’s the first she’s heard of that and says that raises some worries as the measure is being challenged in Court.

Christen says COOL has been fixed and meets current WTO obligations.

Iowa Farm Bureau intends to take their policy to the American Farm Bureau convention early next year asking for the full group’s support for voluntary COOL.
