Copied from the U.S. Cattlemen's Association email to members.

This is our opportunity to let the Administration know just how important this issue is to producers and consumers of agricultural products. Go to: http://www.regulations.gov Type in: Docket No. FMCSA-2017-0297 (you can cut and paste) Click on: Submit a Formal Comment Follow the instruction on the screen. You can attach a letter from you own files, cut and paste your letter in the box provided, or simply type your comments in the box. Comments are due by 11:59pm EST on November 30th, 2017.

Unfortunately, the time for submitting comments to actually affect the implementation of this mandate was 2 years ago. The livestock transportation, buyers, producers, slaughter facilities, and feeders in the fine form of ignoring the what ifs have waited until too late in this game to change anything. The only hope for change is to also get the consumers on board with fighting for an exemption of some kind. That will occur when there is no meat and produce on the shelves in the stores, or the prices have skyrocketed. REPLY REPLY WITH QUOTE
