The North Dakota Stockmen's Association (NDSA) has told R-CALF to sever its ties with the anti-meat groups, Consumer Federation of America, Consumer Policy Institute and Public Citizen. If it doesn't, the resolution says NDSA will withdraw its R-CALF affiliation.

Specifically, the resolution calls for R-CALF to:

  • Stop associating with and, distance itself from, groups that have a history of promoting anti-beef industry agendas.

  • Use sound science in its press releases and statements.

  • Immediately stop making damaging statements that will lead to the erosion of consumer confidence in the U.S. beef supply.
