(American Meat Institute)

AMI has added a new resource page to http://www.meatinstitute.org/ in an effort to keep its members, policymakers and the press informed about the proposed Grain Inspection Packers and Stockyards Administration (GIPSA) rule that attempts to change dramatically the way livestock are procured and marketed in the U.S.

The page includes three new fact sheets: “Ten Key Facts About the Proposed GIPSA Rule” (http://bit.ly/akON59), “Case Studies in the Potential Consequences of the Proposed GIPSA Rule” (http://bit.ly/dhJ7BE) and “Competition in the Livestock and Meat Industry: What the Courts Have Said (http://bit.ly/crr16i).

The page also includes government documents, testimony, producer group comments on the rule, press releases and news stories, media coverage, blog posts and links to additional resources.

To access the page, go to the “Hot Topics” box on AMI’s homepage or click here: http://bit.ly/9SQVOp.
