GIPSA: NCBA President, USDA Undersecretary spar over rule

Like two bulls butting heads in the pasture, so did Steve Foglesong, National Cattlemen’s Beef Association (NCBA) president, and Edward Avalos, USDA Under Secretary for Marketing and Regulatory Programs when discussing the USDA Grain Inspection, Packers and Stockyards Administration (GIPSA) proposed rule. Foglesong and Avalos shared their differing opinions on the rule on Dec. 1, 2010 at the South Dakota Cattlemen’s Association’s (SDCA) Annual Trade Show and Convention.

The commenting period for the GIPSA proposed rule ended November 22, and now USDA is charged with reading and reviewing the letters from producers. Avalos and Foglesong were featured speakers during an SDCA luncheon, and they offered their insights on GIPSA and how it might play a role in cattle marketing if it is put in place.
