The multimillion dollar livestock operation Promiseland, based in Nebraska, has violated the Organic Foods Product Act and will lose its organic certification for five years. A US Department of Agriculture examiner tacked on one more year on the original four year suspension in his decision rejecting the appeal, Caymanmama.com reports.
The violations had been found during various controls, after consumer protection agencies reported to the department. Promiseland, which manages 22,000 cattle on 5,200 ha, was charged with failing to feed its cattle organic grain, selling fraudulent feed and selling conventional cattle as organic cattle.
