USDA has released a proposed rule that would require packers to report wholesale pork sales. The proposed rule outlines what information packers would be required to submit to USDA and how the information would be submitted.
Under the proposed rule, packers would submit the price of each sale, quantity and other characteristics that the USDA Agricultural Marketing Service (AMS) will use to produce public marketing reports. Public comments on the proposed rule are to be received by May 22.
Comments should be submitted electronically at www.regulations.gov or by mail to Michael Lynch, Director; USDA, AMS, LS, LGMN Division, 1400 Independence Ave., SW, Room 2619-S; Washington, DC 20250; telephone (202) 720-6231or fax (202) 690-3732.
