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, 89 percent of consumers say they want to know where their meat comes from.

America’s independent domestic ranchers, represented by Public Justice, have taken USDA to court. But that is not enough. The suit will not go all the way to restoring the transparency lost in the domestic market.

That is why R-CALF USA is building a 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. Adding your donation will help show the Trump Administration that the public remembers the president’s commitments and that we demand a government for the people, not just for multinational agribusinesses.

All donations will fund R-CALF USA's fight to bring back COOL. For more information visit www.r-calfusa.com.
