New Resolution Supports MCOOL
Fred Wacker is president of the Montana Stockgrowers Association from Miles City and explains why MSGA is supporting it.
“Our members have expressed enormous support for a program which allows for the preservation and protection of beef using the “USA” label and allows consumers to have a clear choice between “USA” beef and “Non-USA” beef,” said MSGA President, Fred Wacker.
The resolution urges the President to require the U.S. Trade Representative to enter into the necessary trade negotiations to allow the U.S. to re-implement mandatory country of origin labeling in a manner that’s compliant with WTO regulations.
Montana congressman Greg Gianforte has also sent a letter to Agriculture Secretary Sonny Perdue to find a meaningful solution to allow “Product of the USA” labeling on U.S. beef.
