US Cattlemens’ Group Defending COOL On Two Fronts

US Cattlemens’ Group Defending COOL On Two Fronts

U.S. Cattlemen Association members are fighting on two fronts to defend the. revised Country of Origin Labeling Law.  The group is hoping to get a favorable ruling from the WTO if they convene a compliance panel hearing on the case. The other fight is in the courts. U.S. Cattlemen’s COOL committee Chair and South Dakota producer Danni Beer says the next step in the litigation process is a hearing on COOL opponents effort to gain a preliminary injunction to stop the law.

Beer says her group is urging its members and other fellow producers to join them in fighting for Country of Origin Labeling as well as donate to the cause to help defray legal expenses.

U.S. Cattlemen’s Association, National Farmers Union, the American Sheep Industry and Consumer Federation of America have all intervened to back COOL while 9 U.S. and Canadian meat groups oppose the law and are looking to get the injunction.
