USDA/GIPSA RIN: 0580-AB04 Publication ID: Spring 2010 
Title: Livestock, Poultry, and Feed Weighing 
Abstract: GIPSA is proposing to amend an existing weighing regulation under the Packers and Stockyards Act, 1921 concerning Purchases, Sales, Acquisitions, Payments, and Settlements to be Made on Actual Weights. The proposed amendment to the current regulation would clarify that actual weight must be used for weighing livestock and poultry for purchases, sales, acquisitions, payments, and settlements. The proposed amendment would remove references to specific types of regulated entities and thus clarify that the regulation applies to types of transactions regardless of what type of party is performing the transaction. The current regulation requires that any adjustments to the actual weight of livestock and live poultry must be full and accurately explained. The proposed amendment would extend that requirement to adjustments to the weight of unused feed. We propose removing current language allowing for the use of "reasonably determined" estimated weight rather than actual weight. This would make this regulation consistent with other regulations issued under the P&S Act, which do not allow "reasonably determined" weight.
