NOC Fights Back on Organic Animal Welfare Withdrawal

Posted: January 31, 2018

The National Organic Coalition, our Members, and Network Affiliates are alarmed that the USDA is planning to withdraw the Organic Livestock and Poultry Practices (OLPP) Rule. Our goal was to flood the USDA with comments opposing the withdrawal in advance of the comment deadline on January 18. The USDA received a record 71,389 submissions during the comment period – thank you to everyone who submitted comments and mobilized grassroots supporters. NOC also participated in a full-page open letter in the Washington Post on January 16 expressing our deep concern over the USDA’s actions.
