Metadata Updated: February 21, 2020

GIPSA Livestock and Meat Marketing Study Final Reports (February 2007). In fiscal year 2003, GIPSA received $4.5 million in appropriations to study marketing practices in the whole livestock and red meat industry. In June 2004, at the end of a competitive bidding process, GIPSA awarded a $4.3 million contract to the RTI International (RTI) to conduct the study. RTI delivered an interim report in July 2005. The interim report described alternative marketing arrangements (AMAs), common terms in AMAs, and why industry participants used them. In February 2007, GIPSA released the final report. The final report included results from RTI’s analysis of the extent of use, price relationships, and costs and benefits of AMAs.
