Title: ●Poultry Growing Tournament Systems: Fairness and Related Concerns 
Abstract:

The Agricultural Marketing Service (AMS) seeks comments and information to inform policy development and future rulemaking proposals regarding the use of poultry grower ranking systems commonly known as tournaments in contract poultry production.  AMS seeks this input in response to numerous complaints from poultry growers about the use of tournament systems.  Comments in response to this request would help AMS tailor further rulemaking in addition to that already planned and under way to address specific industry practices in relation to tournament systems.
