MRCC Op-Ed in The Joplin Globe:
For decades, MRCC members, farmers, and consumers across Missouri and our country have been sounding the alarm about the negative impacts of mergers such as these that put independent livestock producers out of business, allow corporations to charge consumers more, extract wealth from our communities, pollute our land, water, and air, and weaken our national security.
To this administration and Congress: Stop the lip service and do something substantial that will truly help family farmers, our local economies, and our country. First up? Pass the Prohibiting Anticompetitive Mergers Act and finish the to-do list in the executive order.
