Reverse Corporate Control of Livestock Markets

The Grain Inspection Packers and Stockyards Administration (GIPSA) has issued new rules that define and prohibit some of the worst corporate practices in the livestock industry.   You can comment on the new rules by typing directly into the box below.  Its best - and most effective - if you use your own words. 
   
Tell USDA to stand firm and to not weaken the rules.
 Tell them that we need strong rules to curb corporate control over livestock and poultry markets.  We need rules that foster fair prices for farmers and ample opportunities for farmers and ranchers to pursue value-added products that respond to consumer demand for high quality food.  Aggressive enforcement of the Packers and Stockyards Act is essential to these aims.
