FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE


Robert Taylor Appointed OCM Economics Fellow


Lincoln, NE ~ Dr. C. Robert Taylor has accepted an appointment as an OCM Economics Fellow. He is an Auburn University agricultural economics professor specializing in industrial organization in the livestock sector. Dr. Taylor's qualifications and publications may be viewed at the OCM website "experts" page.

"I am honored to accept the OCM Economics Fellow appointment," said Taylor. "We live in times of historic high concentration levels in the agribusiness and retail supermarket sectors. Market failure and economic power imbalance risks have never beengreater. Retail price spreads in beef, for example, have increased to levels not seen in the past. Focusing economic research on the price, power and market access problems within in the agriculture sector is very important."

Dr. Taylor’s areas of interest include econometric market power analysis in the cattle, hog and poultry sectors. He also has written about similar problems in other agricultural input, production and processing markets. Dr. Taylor serves on the Agricultural Systems Journal Editorial Board, and has served on the Editorial Boards of the Journal of Agricultural & Applied Economics, Review of Agricultural Economics, and American Journal of Agricultural Economics. He has testified several times before the U.S. Senate. He also served as an expert in the historic Picket v. Tyson Fresh Meats, Inc. trial, proving Tyson utilized captive supply cattle contracts to depress cattle prices.

"We are pleased and excited to have Dr. Taylor working on the market problems in agriculture,” said Keith Mudd, OCM President. “As the Plaintiffs’ expert in the Pickett v. Tyson Fresh Meats case, he is the only agricultural economist in America to have examined millions of cattle transactions from internal meat packer data as well as detailed weekly slaughter plant profit and loss data. His conclusions show captive supplies in cattle cost Rural America money every day of every year since the early 1990s. He has shown that market power in the poultry industry reduces the income of broiler growers well below what they would earn in a fair, competitive market. We must help continue Dr. Taylor’s work to provide fairness, prosperity and economic liberty to independent agriculture.

The Organization for Competitive Markets (OCM) is an agricultural free market and competition think tank seeking honesty, prosperity and economic liberty for farmers, ranchers and rural communities.

Taylor never proved anything in Pickett. Had Taylor actually proved anything the Judge would not have thrown the case out on it's ass after relunctanly agreeing to hear it in the first place.

Taylor had "theories" that, by his own admission, were "UNTESTED THEORIES". Judge Strom couldn't believe that Taylor hadn't tested any of his theories and even asked him to repeat this admission. LOL!

Taylor's found a perfect home. "Untested theories" go with "lies' quite well.

What lies? Glad you asked!

The OCM's latest and greatest fabrication is that the opening of the Canadian border would result in a $240 per head loss in fat cattle prices.

WHAT A TOTAL CROCK!!!!
