PACKERS & STOCKYARDS
Our Government and Industry Affairs team and committee actively lobbies on regulatory and legislative activities of the federal and state governments that may impact livestock marketing businesses. They are also responsible for oversight of industry issues and polices outside the marketing sector, which would have potential or real effect on LMA's member livestock marketing businesses. Issues typically covered include Packers & Stockyards Act requirements, animal welfare/rights, animal health, animal identification, market competition, domestic and foreign trade, environmental regulations, livestock emergency planning, commodity checkoff programs, market news and price reporting.
If you have any questions about these resources or other industry information or legal issues, contact:
LMA VP of Government and Industry Affairs
LMA Legal Counsel
You also can talk to LMA VP of Membership Services, Kristen Parman, or your LMA Regional Executive Officer about these issues.
