South Dakota Considering Country-of-Origin Labeling

South Dakota Considering Country-of-Origin Labeling

2/1/2017 1:31:00 PM/Categories: General News, Today's Top 5, People in Ag, Livestock, Livestock Markets, Cattle, National News, Ag Issues

Meatingplace.com reports:  

A group of South Dakota state congressmen has introduced a bill that would require retail beef products sold in the state to bear a country-of-origin label.

After more than a decade of wrangling, Congress had repealed the labeling law at the end of 2015 that required retailers to include the animal's country of origin on packages of red meat.  Lawmakers had stated they had no choice but to get rid of the U.S. labeling requirements after the World Trade Organization repeatedly ruled against them.  

However, WNAX radio reported that Silvia Christen with the South Dakota Stock Growers Association said her group supports the measure because it’s what consumers want.  

The bill could be heard by the state legislature as soon as this week, Christen said.

The US cattlemen deserve Country of Origin Labeling. Shame on the crooked Pat Roberts of Kansas and the crooked NCBA for getting it overturned.
