Did EPA engage in illegal activities to push WOTUS? Beef Roundtable investigates

BEEF and Purdue University have joined forces to launch the Beef Roundtable, a monthly video podcast that features some of the top leaders in the beef industry. The video podcast, co-hosted by Ron Lemenager, Extension beef specialist at Purdue University and BEEF Senior Editor Burt Rutherford, will feature discussion of current topics of interest to all beef producers.

This month’s Beef Roundtable features a look at the controversial Waters of the U.S. rule (WOTUS). With recent revelations that the Army Corps of Engineers had serious questions about how the EPA went about gaining approval of the rule, the video looks at the issue and how it might affect cattle producers. Guests are Steve Foglesong, owner of Black Gold Ranch and Feedlot at Astoria, Ill., and Bob Stallman, president of the American Farm Bureau Federation. Watch the video podcast above. In addition to being available here, the sessions can be viewed at, on the Beef Roundtable YouTube channel and iTunes.

We hope you find the Beef Roundtable video podcast informative and useful. If you have suggestions for future topics, please let us know in the comments section below.
