‘I blame you,’ IBP head tells producers

Blaming the victim – IBP CEO and President, Robert Peterson, blames the people he is stealing from for the disastrous state of the cattle industry.

This was the last time we know of that the IBP CEO spoke in front of a large crowd of producers. It didn’t go well for Peterson or the over 800 cattlemen in attendance.

Peterson  blamed the Cattlemen in the room for the broken market he and the other big meatpackers were manipulating.

Peterson and his side kick, Andy Gottshalk, didn’t hold up well to questions and comments from other panel members and producers.
