When it comes to mandated RFID tags, R-CALF has been steady in its battle against USDA over the past two years.

Ranchers-Cattlemen Action Legal Fund United Stockgrowers of America (R-CALF) recently filed an opening brief to request the 10th Circuit Court of Appeals reverse a lower court’s dismissal of their case against USDA’s mandated radio-frequency identification (RFID) tag rule. The suit represents R-CALF, as well as four private ranchers. 

USDA recently announced radio frequency identification (RFID) tags will not be mandated as the only tag option for interstate movement of cattle and bison, after reviewing public comments from a 2020 proposal.
