GIPSA Rule Discussed At Upcoming KS Cattlemen’s Meeting

20 10 2010

McPherson Co. Feeders owner and manager, Allan Sents will be in Madison, Kansas on October 26 to discuss the proposed GIPSA rule and its effects on the industry.

Sents was recently selected by the USDA to participate as a panelist in the DOJ-USDA Competition Workshop in Fort Collins, Co. and is also a past president of the Kansas Cattlemen’s Association.

The event is open to the public and a free supper will be hosted by the Kansas Cattlemen’s Association.  The supper and meeting will begin at 7 pm at the Sauder Community Building 110 S 1st St. in Madison.

“A lot of industry people are talking about this proposed rule, and there are a number of producers that still do not know what the rule entails.  Allan will be able to discuss some of the details and copies of the rule will be available for anyone who wants to read it for themselves.  This is a major move towards competition, and this meeting is a great opportunity to get informed, have questions addressed, and get involved in the rule making process that affects us all,” KCA Executive Director Brandy Carter said.

This event is free and open to the public, consumers and producers alike. Kansas Cattlemen’s Association is dedicated to promoting the interests of the independent cattle producers of Kansas and work devotedly to fulfill our mission: “to restore profits, self-esteem, freedom, fair trade, trust and community pride back to the farms, ranches, and rural communities across Kansas and the nation.”
