Where are we at with the DOJ investigation?
Brenda Masek, Vice President, talks with KBear Country listening area bringing updates on where the DOJ investigation is currently at and Midyear meeting.
The DOJ investigation seems to be moving somewhere. They are asking for specific incidences of anti-trust of the big 4 packers. Having those examples would give the investigation some teeth. There is also a class action lawsuit coming out on the retailer side coming back on the big 4 for price gouging during the COVID-19 issues. Nebraska Cattlemen led the charge with a letter to the DOJ but a lot of organizations followed suit, giving more strength behind it.
