Stand Up To Big Meat!
Tell the Department of Agriculture that you don't want the big meat processors controlling our food supply and driving farmers and ranchers off the land.
The USDA has proposed rules to put a halt to unfair and deceptive practices in the marketplace that hurt independent livestock ranchers and poultry and pork farmers. A handful of companies like Tyson, Cargill and JBS/Swift use their enormous economic power to manipulate the market and push prices down for farmers and ranchers. The results have been devastating. Since 1980, the U.S. has lost nearly 600,000 hog farms, and more than half a million cattle farms. To build a more sustainable and resilient food system - we need more farmers and ranchers – not fewer.
