The Packers and Stockyards Act is designed to promote the interests of consumers as well as farmers and ranchers in healthy competition. It regulates the meatpacking industry and governs the practices by which the livestock and poultry industries operate.
The Act was passed in response to small farmers finding it impossible to break into the industry, which is largely run by a handful of major meat producers and providers.
