AG Six Trying to Block Merge of Beef Companies

By  | 

Attorney General Steve Six is trying to block the merger of two beef companies.

Monday he joined the US Department of Justice and Attorneys Generals from 12 other states in filing a lawsuit to block JBS Beef from acquiring National Beef packing company.

Those are the fourth and third largest beef processors respectively in the US.

The complaint says the merger would allow the other two larger companies to pay less for beef then charge consumers more for it.
