U.S. Senators Mike Rounds of South Dakota and Tina Smith of Minnesota are asking for YOUR help in rallying support from Senators in other states to join a letter to Attorney General Merrick Garland demanding the Department of Justice take action on their investigation into the U.S. meatpacking industry.
Four companies operate 18 of the top 20 beef slaughter facilities in the country. Two of these companies are foreign owned. US cattle producers have long demanded a serious look into the rise of global corporate consolidation—and action is needed NOW.
USCA urges its members to dial the Capitol Switchboard today at (202) 224-3121 and ask both of your Senators and Representative to cosign the letter along with Senators Rounds and Smith. The deadline for Members of Congress to join the letter is Wednesday, May 26.
USCA commends Senators Rounds and Smith for providing the bipartisan leadership needed to restore the fundamental principles of fair competition in the U.S. beef and cattle industry. Make sure your elected officials support this effort — call today!
