first_imgShare Facebook Twitter Google + LinkedIn Pinterest The U.S. Department of Agriculture Agricultural Marketing Service (AMS) recently released notice that they are delaying, for the third time, implementation of the Organic Livestock and Poultry Practices (OLPP) rule.During the course of reviewing the OLPP Rule, in addition to a question about the scope of the statutory authority, a material error in the record was discovered, AMS said. USDA is delaying the rule so that important questions, such as the likely costs and benefits, can be more fully assessed through the notice and comment process prior to making a final decision on the direction of the rule.The OLPP final rule amends the organic livestock and poultry production requirements by adding new provisions for livestock handling and transport for slaughter and avian living conditions; and expands and clarifies existing requirements covering livestock care and production practices and mammalian living conditions. The delay has been met with widely diverging responses.“The USDA’s move…should be seen for what it is: a clear attempt to let industrial agriculture interests usurp the legitimacy of the organic label,” said Amalie Lipstreu, Ohio Ecological Food and Farm Association policy program coordinator. “This rule has been in the making for more than 10 years and has been fully vetted.”The OLPP final rule would amend production requirements for livestock and poultry under the USDA organic regulations. This rule adds new provisions for how livestock are handled during transport for slaughter as well as avian living conditions. The rule also expands and clarifies existing requirements covering livestock care and production practices and mammalian living conditions. The OLPP final rule was scheduled to become effective on March 20, 2017.The American farm Bureau, however, is seeking full withdrawal of the Organic Livestock and Poultry Practices Rule.“The American Farm Bureau thanks Secretary Perdue for delaying the Organic Livestock and Poultry Practices Rule. The health and well-being of livestock is a top priority for all farmers and ranchers. We work with a host of specialists, from animal scientists to nutritionists, to manage our farms in the best manner possible to ensure wholesome, healthy food. This rule, on the other hand, has been about pushing an agenda rather than advancing food safety or animal welfare. Animal welfare metrics do not meet the original intent of the Organic Production Act,” said Zippy Duvall, American Farm Bureau Federation president. “Organic farmers and ranchers would be forced out of the organic sector or out of business entirely if this rule goes into effect and forces them to arbitrarily change their production practices. We hope that as the Agriculture Department reviews this rule, it will conclude, as we have, that the rule is an act of federal overreach and should be withdrawn.”last_img read more

And with the ballooning debts in Europe, many have suggested that these opportunities in Europe are even more restricted.But is the U.S. really in better shape than Europe for entrepreneurship? According to an infographic created by Grasshopper, the differences between the regions aren’t as great as one might imagine.The infographic compares what it takes to become an entrepreneur in several Western European nations with what it takes in the U.S. The U.S. leads with entrepreneurial activity as a percentage of GDP: 11.3% in the U.S. as compared to the next closest competitor, the U.K. 6.3%.It’s not that the U.S. has the lowest barriers to starting a business. Sweden, the U.K. and the Netherlands all have fewer barriers, according to the infographic. Nor is it that the U.S. has proportionally more immigrant entrepreneurs.But the U.S. does have proportionately more entrepreneurs, and according to the infographic, they are among the most optimistic and least fearful. And perhaps this, rather than any legal or economic circumstance, is what makes the difference. 8 Best WordPress Hosting Solutions on the Marketlast_img read more
