  • The U.S. Court of Appeals for the District of Columbia Circuit upheld a lower court ruling denying a preliminary injunction request on the Agricultural Marketing Service’s enforcement of the rule implementing the labeling program on Friday.

    The American Meat Institute and other groups, including the National Cattlemen’s Beef Association and National Pork Producers Council, challenged the rule as a violation of the Country of Origin Labeling (COOL) statute and First Amendment but the appeals court thought the groups unlikely to succeed on the merits of their claims.

  • The farm-focused, feature length documentary Farmland will be released across 60 major national markets in the U.S. on May 1st.

    Allentown Productions says Farmland offers viewers an intimate and firsthand glimpse into the lives of six young farmers and ranchers across the country chronicling their high-risk, high-reward jobs and their passion for a way of life that has been passed down from generation to generation.

    Award-winning filmmaker James Moll says audiences will hear thoughts and opinions about agriculture from the mouths of farmers and ranchers themselves.
