Dave Domina Testifies at NE Legislative Hearing – Ag Issues
Dave Domina fights for independent Ag producers.
Packers of livestock should not be able to own animals before they are purchased for slaughter. They should not be permitted to control the entire vertical sequence from breeding to eating, or from feeding the animals, to rendering them to be consumed by humans. This basic policy was established by the United States Congress in 1921. Briefly, Congressional policy divided livestock production from meat processing in this basic way:
- Livestock Producers: Breed, Feed, & Sell Live Animals
- Meat Processors: Kill, Render, Divide & Sell Meat & By Products
- Service Providers: Transport, Chill, Provide market reports & Sell at Retail
