Tomi Lahren's FoxNation Episode Featuring R-CALF USA to Air Tomorrow.; Lahren Also to Discuss Ranchers' Plight on Fox News Channel

FoxNation host Tomi Lahren delivered a powerful keynote address to R-CALF USA members who attended this year's annual convention. Lahren brought her FoxNation News team with her to cover the event and made it into an episode on her digital streaming platform FoxNation. The debut of the FoxNation episode with Tomi Lahren featuring R-CALF USA will be available to watch tomorrow Wednesday, Sept. 25, on FoxNation at www.foxnation.com. Lahren will also discuss the episode on Wednesday morning at 6:30 a.m. EDT on FoxandFriends that airs on Fox News Channel. Please share this far and wide!

Those who don't have a FoxNation account can get it free for 30 days at www.foxnation.com with the promo code TOMI30 at checkout. You can always subscribe for 30 days and cancel the subscription later if you choose.

Lahren, who has captured the hearts and minds of millions, including President Donald Trump, is championing the restoration of Mandatory Country-of-Origin Labeling (COOL) on beef for U.S. cattle producers.

The episode will feature a one-on-one interview with R-CALF USA CEO Bill Bullard and showcase a roundtable of ranchers featuring R-CALF USA members Kent Lahren and Lora Bledsoe as well as R-CALF USA Vice President Kyle Hemmert and Board of Director Jay Platt.

Kent Lahren, of Mobridge, S.D., epitomizes America's family oriented, western ranching operations. Jay Platt, of Saint Johns, Ariz., and his two sons own and operate a multi-generational cow/calf ranching operation. Lora Bledsoe, of Hugo, Colo., is a veterinarian and a ranch wife. Along with her husband, James Bledsoe, Lora is part of a large, multi-generational ranch that includes the families of James' father and brother. Kyle Hemmert, of Oakley, Kan., and his wife and family own both a cow/calf and stocker operation along with a livestock auction yard, Oakley Livestock Commission Company. In that capacity, Kyle knows the challenges faced by many ranchers who market cattle at his auction yard.

Lahren is also the author of the new book "Never Play Dead: How the Truth Makes You Unstoppable." She is the youngest political talk show host in history. Her signature "Final Thoughts" segments exceed 500 million views on Facebook alone. As Tomi says, "Fight on!"

More Info

We at R-CALF USA are a group of independent, American ranchers who take pride in the beef we raise for you and your family, and we believe everyone has a right to know where their beef comes from, and how it was raised.

If you go to the supermarket and buy beef or pork products plastered with the words "PRODUCT OF U.S.A.," you might assume that the meat actually came from domestic livestock. But you’d probably be wrong.

The USDA doesn't require beef and pork to be labeled with its country of origin, meaning multinational corporations can (and do) pass off their imported products as U.S. goods. If this seems wrong to you, you're not alone — in recent polling, at least 90 percent of consumers say they want to know where their meat comes from.

R-CALF USA has taken the USDA to court. The court agreed with us that independent beef producers are harmed by lack of COOL however, the court said it couldn't do anything to aid ranchers; that it requires executive or legislative action.  

That is why R-CALF USA is building this campaign to raise awareness for executive and legislative action. Immediately after Donald Trump was elected president, he stated he would stand up for American farmers and ranchers by reinstating COOL. But within days, the Trump administration succumbed to pressure from multinational corporations and reneged on his pledge. We are demanding Trump follow through and ensure that COOL is part of his administration’s agenda.

This administration’s trade policies must protect American producers and consumers, not just corporations, by bringing back COOL. Please help show the new administration that the public remembers the president's commitments and we demand a government for the people and not just for multinational agribusinesses. Your donation will fund R-CALF USA’s nationwide campaign to raise public and voter awareness for COOL via direct mail, radio ads and internet ads to bring back COOL.      

R-CALF USA (Ranchers-Cattlemen Action Legal Fund, United Stockgrowers of America) is the largest producer-only cattle trade association in the United States. We are a nonprofit, nonpartisan, member-driven organization. Prefer to donate by mail? Make checks payable to R-CALF USA/COOL and mail to: PO Box 30715 Billings, MT 59107 and your donation will get added here. To learn more visit www.r-calfusa.com

Update #12

If COOL for beef is to be restored, then you must do it! We need Congress to restore COOL for beef and this will only happen if your Senators and Representatives commit to introducing legislation to do so. Contact information for every Senator and Representative seeking 2018 re-election is listed at www.labelourbeef.com.

Call and e-mail each of your Senators and Representatives and get them to commit to introducing COOL legislation right now if they want you to vote for them again, and hold them to it (meaning you will want to call each of them on a regular basis until COOL is restored), as they are being constantly pressured by the opposition.

Update #6

Tomi Lahren says Trump must act to help American cattle ranchers. The U.S. economy has lost 13.6 BILLION since the COOL (country of origin labeling) law was repealed in 2015. Foreign governments and the big meat packers lobbied hard for the repeal, and our legislators folded.
