New Rule Provides for Transparency in The Poultry Sector
companies will be required to provide a disclosure document which gives those prospective poultry producers or existing culture producers the information they need that they don't necessarily currently get so that they can make good solid business decisions. This has information about the financial outcomes they can expect from putting in a new poultry house and about what it would mean to make certain choices on their farm. They get information about the guaranteed number of bird placements per year, minimum stocking density information about the actual earnings of other poultry growers so that they have a realistic view across a wide range of earnings about what they might actually be able to anticipate.”
By having this information Shier says that transparency can help producers to make decisions when it comes to growing their operations or and even some cases getting into the commercial poultry production business. In addition to this role, USDA has announced efforts to increase competition and innovation and seeds improvements to USDA Meat procurement requirements and the establishment of a new chief competition officer at USDA.
