The U.S Department of Agriculture (USDA), Agricultural Marketing Service (AMS), National Organic Program (NOP) will host a public listening session, or public hearing, for stakeholders to share their comments on regulatory requirements for organic livestock and poultry standards. This session is being held during the open public comment period for the Organic Livestock and Poultry Standards (OLPS) proposed rule.

During the listening session, NOP staff will hear comments on the new proposed rule.  Transcripts will be posted in the Federal Register document for the associated proposed rule. AMS intends to use the information to guide future rulemaking and standards development activities for poultry and mammalian living conditions, health care, transport, and slaughter.
