Fairness for Farmers

Coporporate monopolies are taking a bigger and bigger cut, costing families more while family farmers are making less

Farmers Union is taking action to promote fair markets, competition, and to protect the future of the family farmer & rancher.

Take Action with Us

From Production to Plate…

Corporate consolidation and monopolies in agriculture affect us all.

CORPORATE PRICE FIXING

During the COVID-19 epidemic, companies like Pilgrim’s Pride took advantage of tight supply chains by illegally inflating prices. 

HIGHER COST TO CONSUMERS

When prices get high in the supermarket, it’s not the producer taking more $ to the bank. It’s packers & processors. 

LOWER PRICES FOR THE FAMILY FARMER

Family farmers & ranchers are forced to accept thinner and thinner margins and even losses as the “price-takers”. 

ACCESS TO TECHNOLOGY

When the tractor breaks down, farmers need access to the technology to make speedy fixes to preserve their liveliehood. They need the Right to Repair. 

What is Right to Repair?

4 Corporations control

over 54% of poultry, pork & beef processing & packing

In just 50 years,

40% of flour mills & 88% of meat processing facilities have gone out of business

95% of large farm tractors

are made by just 3 companies

What can we do?

Join the fight. Stand with other Montana families in the fight for #FairnessforFarmers.
