  1. CCA succeeds in COOL repeal for beef and pork, Canada’s beef producers victors as 7 year trade war ends December 18, 2015 Calgary, AB – The Canadian Cattlemen’s Association (CCA) is elated that the omnibus appropriations bill including language to repeal U.S. Country of Origin Labeling (COOL) for beef and pork today cleared both the U.S. House and Senate and has been sent to President Barack Obama to be signed. Once signed, the bill will become law, marking the successful conclusion of a legal battle initiated by the CCA over seven years ago. The passage of the omnibus appropriations bill in the U.S. House and Senate comes on the same day that Canada is to receive authority from the World Trade Organization (WTO) to impose retaliatory tariffs of more than $1 billion on U.S. products if COOL is not repealed. “This is fantastic news for Canada’s beef cattle producers,” said CCA President Dave Solverson. “The CCA initiated this fight in 2008 because the U.S. failed to live up to its international trade obligations. In the seven years since U.S. COOL has been in effect, the cumulative losses for the Canadian beef and pork sectors have been staggering.” CCA Vice President Dan Darling said it has been a long and arduous battle, and a costly one with legal fees nearing $4 million. However, that amount – paid by beef producers through their provincial check-off -- is eclipsed by the cost of COOL discrimination inflicted on the Canadian and Mexican producers. COOL repeal is an excellent example of provincial check-off dollars at work and Darling thanked producers for directing their dollars towards the file.
