Meatpacking CEOs Agree to Testify in Congress

Will discuss rising meat prices with Agriculture Committee.

The CEOs of Cargill, Tyson, JBS, and National Beef Packing have agreed to testify before the House Agriculture Committee. The leaders of the four largest U.S. beef producers will take part in a congressional hearing to discuss the lower rates in cattle markets and the higher pricing of beef products. 

“In addition to this panel of CEOs, we will be convening a panel of ranchers to hear what consolidation in the beef industry has done to their bottom lines and viability,” said Committee Chairman David Scott of Georgia. “We look forward to the variety of perspectives we will receive at this hearing and the clarity it will provide to our ranchers, our consumers, and to our nation’s food security.”

As the Lord Leads, Pray with Us…

  • For members of Congress as they investigate the rising cost of meat.
  • For wisdom for representatives as they search for causes of inflation.
  • For agriculture officials as they support the nation’s ranchers and farmers.
