FEED LANGUAGE

88B

"Sec. 771. None of the funds made available in this Act may be used to require that a farm satisfy section 2110(c)(1) of the Organic Foods Production Act of 1990 (7 U.S.C. 6509(c)(1)) in order to be certified under such Act as an organic farm with respect to the livestock produced on the farm unless the report prepared by the Secretary of Agriculture pursuant to the recommendations contained in the joint explanatory statement of the Managers on the part of the House of Representatives and the Senate to accompany Public Law 107-171 (House Conference Report 107-424, pages 672-673) confirms the commercial availability of organically produced feed, at no more than twice the cost of conventionally produced feed, to meet current market demands."


 

NOTES:

1. Section 2110(c)(1) of the Organic Foods Production Act of 1990 (7 U.S.C. 6509(c)(1)) reads:

"2110. ANIMAL PRODUCTION PRACTICES AND MATERIALS
(c) Practices.—For a farm to be certified under this title as an organic farm with respect to the livestock produced by such farm, producers on such farm
(1) shall feed such livestock organically produced feed that meets the requirements of this title;"

 

2. The “joint explanatory statement” of the House Conference Report reads, in part:

“As soon as practicable, the Secretary is urged to undertake a study to ascertain the availability of key inputs into organic production, including the availability of organically produced feedstuffs for the organic production of livestock and poultry.”
