Farm Progress America, June 3, 2022

Max Armstrong discusses new scrutiny for the poultry processing industry regarding pricing.

Max Armstrong reports on news that the Biden Administration is focusing on poultry processors with rules aimed to force the industry to disclose compensation for producers. The administration alleges that the processors work to raise prices for consumers and commercial users while underpaying farmers. Max shares reaction from the National Chicken Council which says the proposed rules will do nothing to lower food prices, nothing to increase competition and nothing to lower inflation.

Max Armstrong's Farm Progress America is a daily look at key issues in agriculture. It is produced and presented by Max Armstrong, veteran farm broadcaster and host of This Week in Agribusiness.
