NFU fighting ag monopolies, consolidation


NFU fighting ag monopolies, consolidation

National Farmers Union has started a campaign against monopolies in agriculture. The Fairness for Farmers initiative is pushing for stronger enforcement of antitrust laws and the breaking up of monopolies.

NFU is calling on Congressional leaders and the Biden administration to help limit consolidation in agriculture. NFU says monopolies can unfairly take advantage of farmers and ranchers while forcing consumers to pay higher prices for groceries.

NFU President Rob Larew spoke with Montana Senator John Tester and Minnesota Attorney General Keith Ellison during a press call last week expressing optimism that the Biden administration is ‘taking on’ ag consolidation.
