Title: Beltway Beef Audio News

In July 2011, the Humane Society of the United States (HSUS) and the United Egg Producers (UEP) reached an unprecedented agreement to seek federal legislation mandating egg production practices. NCBA Executive Director of Legislative Affairs Kristina Butts says legislation introduced by Congressman Kurt Schrader (D-Ore.) to implement the HSUS-UEP agreement could set a dangerous precedent to allow the federal government to mandate on-farm production practices.

She says NCBA opposes this legislation and will work with to ensure cattlemen’s voices are heard on this issue.
