Lawrence, KS – According to the statement, the measure comes with an executive order signed by President Joe Biden.
Officials say that the order clarifies what meat products can be labeled as products of the USA.
The order also increases market opportunities for ranchers to sell their products for a fairer price.
According to the officials, it will protect farmers and ranchers against unfair practices by large meatpackers and other businesses, making it easier for farmers to file complaints with the USDA regarding pricing practices and protect them from retaliation when they file those reports.
The order will also help small meatpackers get certified to sell their meat in other states.
This order limits tractor manufacturers from determining where farmers can repair their tractors.
