NAMA joins 160 organizations concerned about the rapid consolidation and vertical integration, the livestock and poultry markets because we see the pattern repeated on the water with our seafood market.

Numerous economic studies in recent years have demonstrated the economic harm of current market structures and practices, and have called for greater enforcement of existing federal laws in order to restore competition to livestock and poultry markets.”
