Livestock groups led by the National Cattlemen’s Beef Association are continuing to fight for defeat of the farm bill. Despite their opposition the measure last week passed the House and is expected to be voted on in the Senate this week. NCBA President Scott George says they’re opposing the farm bill because it doesn’t fix Country of Origin or GIPSA rules. He says it also failed to put in needed regulatory fixes.

George says if the Senate passes the farm bill, then his group will work for a stand alone bill or other legislation to try and fix those problems.

The National Pork Producers Council and National Association of Manufacturers is also opposing passage of the farm bill.
