It's no suprise that another former Goldkist facality is being shut down by Pilgrim's Pride. Every facality they have shuttered so far have been those that were acquired on their quest to become the #1 poultry producer. Pilgrim's Pride went around the country buying up poultry companies on borrowed money in order to control 50% of the commodity chicken market and 25% of the total market. This reckless behavior has caused hundreds of farmers and thousands of workers dearly. Everyone involved has suffered greatly except Bo Pilgrim and his board of directors. It is time for them to feel the pain, BOYCOTT PILGRIM'S PRIDE products.
