Call Your Representative to Oppose the GMO Riders

An action alert from the Farm and Ranch Freedom Alliance:

On the heels of the “Monsanto rider” inserted into the House Agriculture Appropriations Bill a few weeks ago, the Biotech industry managed to insert several more damaging provisions into the House version of the Farm Bill.

Together, these GMO industry-promoting provisions override judicial review of GMO crops found to have been approved illegally, gut any real review by the USDA of new GMO crops, and create a forced backdoor approval of “Agent Orange” corn and other currently pending GMO crops. There is even a provision to establish, for the first time, a policy recognizing “allowable” levels of GMO contamination in our food.

Update: Farm Bill, the lawsuit against Monsanto, and more!

News from the Farm and Ranch Freedom Alliance:

This week has been an extremely busy one, with FARFA working hard to protect our farms and our food at every level.

Below are brief updates on the Farm Bill, the lawsuit against Monsanto, Animal ID, and Texas cottage foods.

Farm Bill News

Thank you for calling to support local livestock producers and small-scale processors! A portion of the Pingree Amendment was adopted by the Agriculture Committee. As adopted, the provision directs the USDA, in cooperation with processors and producers, to report within 12 months on what needs to be done to meet the needs of small-scale processors. The agency is also directed to develop a system for electronically approving labels. Although much less than originally proposed, this provision provides the first step towards addressing the barriers to small-scale meat processing.

Urge the House Agriculture Committee to support locally produced meats and small-scale slaughterhouses!

An action alert from the Farm and Ranch Freedom Alliance:

Now that the Senate is done, the House of Representatives is beginning to work on its version of the Farm Bill. The House Agriculture Committee is scheduled to do the “mark up” of the House Farm Bill this week, beginning on Wednesday.

The good news is that Representative Chellie Pingree (D-ME) plans to introduce an amendment to help small-scale slaughterhouses through technical assistance, grants, and more (details at the end of this alert). The lack of small-scale slaughterhouses in many areas of the country is a huge barrier to the ability of local farmers to raise livestock for market. If we want to increase access to locally raised meats, we need to help small-scale slaughterhouses to succeed.
