Cornell University: Set aside program proposed for holding cattle on maintenance diet

In the May 5 issue of Drovers, Greg Henderson reported that a program has been proposed by The Beef Cattle Alliance to subsidize feed yards for holding cattle on a maintenance diet for 75 days. The seven-page proposal, called a “Fed Cattle Set-Aside Program,” would seek to “alleviate the risk of massive economic collapse in the beef cattle industry.” The proposal was developed by the Beef Alliance and modeled after a set-aside program used in Canada after the BSE crisis in 2004.
