Permalink USDA Proposes Withdrawal of Organic Livestock and Poultry Practices Final Rule; Public Comments until January 17

USDA has announced its intention to withdraw the Organic Livestock and Poultry Practices (OLPP) final rule published in the Federal Register on January 19, 2017. The OLPP final rule amends the organic livestock and poultry production requirements in the USDA organic regulations 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 OLPP final rule was originally set to take effect on March 20, 2017, but that deadline was extended and withdrawal of the Final Rule is now proposed. Interested persons are invited to submit written comments online or by mail on this proposal to withdraw the rule, on or before January 17, 2018.
