The following statement may be attributed to Iowa Farm Bureau President Craig Hill:

“We have always believed competition is positive for agriculture and we are encouraged by the Biden administration’s focus on increasing competition in meat processing and other areas of agriculture. Farmers face countless risks and challenges raising the food, fuel and fiber that sustain America, but concern about equal market access and unfair practices should not be one of them. Market transparency and fairness deserve examination and action. We look forward to working with the administration to help bring about needed changes for farmers.”
