Support mandatory Country-of-Origin Labeling

Please take a moment to stand up for Montana’s family ranchers by adding your name to the letter below:

Senator Daines, Senator Tester, Representative Rosendale, Representative Zinke:

Cattle producers are shutting down operations because a handful of corporations are manipulating cattle markets and causing harm to Montana’s ranchers and consumers. One of the mechanisms for causing this harm is by mislabeling beef and pork that is born and raised in the U.S. Because of large meatpacker manipulation, beef and pork are the only products that don’t require a Country-of-Origin Label (COOL), leaving our ranchers to compete with cheaper, imported beef. This fraudulent labeling also puts our consumers at risk, and leads them to purchase beef and pork of unknown origin.

Without mandatory COOL, our ranchers face economic hardship. When our ranches are gone, rural communities suffer a ripple effect with our wealth and our labor extracted by these multinational corporations. Only the corporate meatpackers are reaping the record-breaking profits due to to this broken system.

This is a problem you can fix, and Congress can right a wrong.  We ask you to please support mandatory Country-of-Origin Labeling by co-sponsoring H.R. 5081 – Country of Origin Labeling Enforcement Act (Rep. Hageman) or S. 52 – American Beef Labeling Act of 2023. We also ask that you push for the bill’s inclusion in the upcoming Farm Bill negotiations.

The future of family ranching and the economic viability of rural communities are at stake. We are trusting you to represent Montana’s ranchers and consumers to restore mandatory COOL.
