6. Please Help Maggie the Rancher!
Maggie, an 82-year-old rancher from Canada, is in trouble! With soaring hay prices, she is unable to afford to winter her animals and is faced with losing half of her herd in order to afford feed for the rest, or selling off even more of her land, which is a desperate option. Losing half her herd means that it will take years to rebuild, and she will suffer further hardships due to further reduced income.
7. Demand removal of restrictions on farmers selling their own meat
a) Watch the 1-minute video.

(1/4) Did you know the only way to buy beef or pork or lamb from your local farmer and have it processed by a trusted local non-USDA facility is to buy the whole animal while it’s alive and pay to have it butchered yourself?!— Thomas Massie (@RepThomasMassie) September 8, 2023
(2/4) Most folks aren’t able to buy a whole animal or share a whole animal with other families, much less keep all of that meat in a freezer for months!— Thomas Massie (@RepThomasMassie) September 8, 2023
So they’re forced to buy from a supermarket & farmers are forced to sell their animals to multinational monopolies.
(3/4) The PRIME Act fixes this with one simple change to the law.— Thomas Massie (@RepThomasMassie) September 8, 2023
The PRIME Act lets farmers sell portions of the processed animal (like steaks, or pork loin, or lamb chops) instead of the whole animal, and allows them to use existing local non-USDA processors to butcher it.
c) If you don’t know who your US representative as well as both of your US senators are, find them here.
d) Check they are on the list of current sponsors of the H.R.2814 – PRIME Act.
e) If they are not, contact them (find their contact details here) and urge them to sign on to the H.R.2814 – PRIME Act.
