AFBF is urging USDA to grant an extension of at least 60 days for the comment period to a proposed rule that would amend the Agricultural Marketing Service’s National Organic Program. The proposed rule would make significant changes to existing standards of livestock and poultry production practices for organic operations.
The current published deadline for comments is June 13.
