Eleven years ago a few cattlemen stood up for justice in an Alabama courtroom. The jury awarded the cattlemen $1.28 billion in damages for Tyson/IBP’s manipulation of the cattle market. Before the court could consider injunctive relief, Judge Lyle B. Strom reversed the jury verdict and ordered the cattlemen to pay Tyson/IBP’s court costs of $80,000. The Supreme Court refused to hear the cattlemen’s case for fair markets in favor of the Anna Nicole Smith family feud case. Competitive markets are now only a memory.

The Organization for Competitive Markets supported the cattlemen in the eight year meat packer battle, and continues to work for justice and competitive markets today. Please join us at our 17th Annual Food and Ag Conference
