Update on Animal ID and the Farm Bill

An Announcement from the Weston A. Price Foundation:

Thank you for your patience with the high volume of email alerts in the last couple of weeks! It’s been a very busy time, and it’s likely to stay busy for a while longer as the Farm Bill and Agricultural Appropriations Bill move forward.

Your calls do make a difference. Even if we lose a vote on an issue, each legislator we influence is one step closer to winning next time. The problems with our food system have developed over several decades, and it will take time and a lot of hard work to make real change. Thank you for being part of this important work.

Fundraiser Appeal and Polyface Benefactor Event

An appeal from the Weston A. Price Foundation – Fundraiser for the Farm-to-Consumer Legal Defense Fund:

Donate Once & Feel Good…Twice!
Amazing Gifts for our $100, $150 and $250 Donors

A few words from Sally Fallon Morell…

We are now approaching the fifth anniversary of the Farm-to-Consumer Legal Defense Fund, and I couldn’t be prouder of the work this organization has done. I believe there is no more important organization to safeguard real foods from the perils of modern day thinking (bigger is better), trumped up food safety concerns and government penchant for overregulation at the expense of the precious small farmer.

Farm Bill vote happening — call now!

Action alert from the Weston A. Price Foundation:

[Update on amendment #2310: the US Senate voted against labeling GMOs.]

The Senate is moving ahead with voting on Farm Bill amendments. Out of the more than 300 amendments that were filed, only a quarter of them will actually be voted on, so the process will move fast.

The Tester Breeds & Seeds and the Paul Raw Milk amendments did NOT make the list of amendments to be voted on, unfortunately. The Feinstein Egg bill also did not make the list, though, which is good news.

Call again to protect family farmers, ranchers, and poultry owners from burdensome new Animal ID regulation!

Action alert from the Farm and Ranch Freedom Alliance:

Please keep up the calls to your Representative to stop the looming animal ID rule! The Appropriations Committee is expected to take up the Agricultural Appropriations bill this Tuesday, June 19, so there’s no time to waste.

We know that you get many emails, and we try not to overload you with alerts. With the Farm Bill being debated and the Animal ID regulation close to being issued, though, it’s a very busy time. We appreciate your patience with the multiple emails and, even more, your support of our farmers through your calls!
