Ag groups make a united, hollow contact on meatpackers to participate in nice

On May possibly 17, six farm teams joined voices to call on the U.S. Division of Agriculture, Congress, and the Section of Justice to ensure a “more monetarily sustainable situation for cattle feeders and cow-calf producers.”

That is make-good farm speak for “Meatpackers are skinning U.S. cattlemen so badly now that we 6, not-typically-pleasant teams talk to the federal governing administration — swamp or no swamp — to do a little something rapidly to save what is remaining of our effectively-tanned hides.”

The point that it took the farm team officers a whole working day to hammer out a quite modest agenda on what to do, then an full week to concur on what to say in the brief press release, displays just how much a achieve it was for some of these leaders to even shake arms.
