Competition Workshop Agenda Announced

Fri, 20 Aug 2010 17:03:38 CDT

The agenda and panelists have been announced for the August 27, 2010, joint public workshop on competition in the livestock industry. This workshop, to be held in Ft Collins, Colorado, is the fourth in a series of five public workshops sponsored by the U.S. Departments of Agriculture and Justice. The workshop will be held in the main ballroom of the Lory Student Center, Colorado State University, Fort Collins, Colorado. Attendance is free and open to the public.


The workshop will begin with opening remarks and a roundtable discussion including U.S. Attorney General Eric Holder, U.S. Agriculture Secretary Tom Vilsack and Assistant Attorney General for the Justice Department's Antitrust Division Christine Varney. They will be joined by U.S. Representative Betsy Markey, Colorado Governor Bill Ritter, Colorado Attorney General John Suthers, Colorado Commissioner of Agriculture John Stulp and Montana Attorney General Steve Bullock.


The next three scheduled panels will feature a conversation among producers and feeders; a look at developments in the industry in recent decades and the trajectory moving forward; and issues such as contracting, transparency and vertical integration. Additionally, there will be three hours dedicated to public testimony, split into two sessions, one at mid-day and the other after the final panel.

Registration is available here.


Additional information, including submitted public comments and transcripts for past workshops can be found at the Antitrust Division's agriculture workshop website here.
