The Department of Justice and the U.S. Department of Agriculture (USDA) will hold the second joint public workshop on competition and regulatory issues in agriculture May 21 at the Ernest L. Knight Reception Center at Alabama A&M University in Normal, Ala. The workshop, the second of five, will focus on the poultry industry.


These sessions are the first joint Department of Justice/USDA workshops ever to discuss competition and regulatory issues in the agriculture industry. The goals are to promote dialogue and foster learning about legal and economic analyses of issues, and to listen to and learn from those with experience in agriculture. The workshop is free and open to the public.
