Hey USDA & DoJ: Ranchers want more competition in the cattle industry

Big hats carrying small sticks: The CEO of R-Calf, which represents cattle raisers, has been criss-crossing the country, exhorting people to get to Fort Collins, Colorado, on Aug. 27th for a federal-level workshop about competition in the cattle industry. He wants 25,000 to show up and "send a message to the Dept. of Agriculture and Dept. of Justice. That message: More competition in the cattle industry." The government needs to enforce the Packers and Stockyards Act of 1921, he says, and do something about the market-changing consolidation. Buses are being chartered from Montana, North Dakota, South Dakota, and
Nebraska; and carpools and vanpools are
coming from as far away as Washington state. Stampede! (NewWest.Net)
