USDA Kills Rule For Organic Farms
Department of Agriculture announced Monday that it will withdraw an Obama-era rule that would have set new animal welfare standards for farmers producing meat, milk and eggs labeled as USDA organic.
The Organic Livestock and Poultry Practices rule was finalized in January 2017, and was set to take effect in May.
Some of the stipulations of the rule included: Animals would have daily access to the outdoors, and that “enclosed porches” did not qualify as outdoor access..
