Abstract

Texas, as the nation’s top cattle producer, has a stake in regulations governing beef sales. Besides meat products, federal Country of Origin Labeling (COOL) rules cover labeling of fresh fish, fruits, vegetables and nuts. Colin Woodall, National Cattlemen’s Beef Association senior vice president of government affairs, discusses requirements for labeling designed, in part, to provide consumers with information about the source of foods they prepare.
