AgNet Weekly: EATS Act Part Two

Sabrina HalvorsonAgNet Weekly

The battle over the EATS Act continues. We started this two-part series last week with Mary-Thomas Hart, Chief Council with the National Cattlemen’s Beef Association, which is in support of the EATS Act. This week we hear from the opposition. Marty Irby, President of Competitive Market Action and Board Secretary at the Organization for Competitive Markets tells us why he and his organizations are against the act.

Each week we highlight essential legislative and policy conversations affecting agriculture nationwide. Host Sabrina Halvorson is a 30-year media veteran known nationally for her award-winning, balanced, and accurate reporting. For more than 10 years, she has specialized in agriculture news focused on political issues. While most agriculture news podcasts focus primarily on Midwest crops, we uniquely understand specialty crops, their regions, and their related industries. AgNet Weekly also traverses the legislative issues of the livestock industry and other matters related to California and Southeast agriculture.
