Comments on Changes to Organic Livestock and Poultry Practices Rules
USDA has announced its intention to withdraw the Organic Livestock and Poultry Practices final rule published in the Federal Register on January 19, 2017.

Interested persons are invited to submit written comments on this proposal to withdraw the rule, on or before January 17, 2018.
