Cattlemen's Rally set to protest unfair market practices


News Staff - September 30, 2019

OMAHA, NB – Ranchers continue to press the Trump administration to address what they say are unfair market practices in the beef supply chain that adversely affects the commercial producer.

A Cattlemen’s Rally is set for Oct. 2 in Omaha, intended to call attention to current market conditions in which cattle prices are depressed but wholesale and retail beef prices remain near historically high levels.

R-CALF USA has been invited to speak at the event to assist in finding a solution for independent cattle producers. Bill Bullard, R-CALF USA CEO, is scheduled to speak at 2:15 p.m. at the event that is being organized by the Organization for Competitive Markets.

Last week, a Twitter campaign was launched in efforts to reach Trump through a medium he uses almost hourly. Livestock media called for Trump to respond to the cattle producers who helped get him elected by supporting fairness and competition in livestock markets.

According to a September 9, 2019 report by David Kruse, CommStock Investments Inc.,  beef packers are making upwards of $500 per head while feedlots are losing over $200." Cow-calf producers, feeders and stockyard owners say this widening gap has been an issue for the past 20 years.
