The three largest US chicken processors, Tyson, 20 percent of US chicken production; Pilgrim, 17 percent; and Sanderson-Wayne, 17 percent, struggled to find enough employees to staff dis-assembly lines in summer 2022, prompting them to accelerate investments in labor-saving automation such as deboning machines.
Cargill and Continental Grain (Wayne Farms) in August 2021 proposed to buy Sanderson for $4.5 billion and create a company that accounts for 15 percent of US chicken production. To gain DOJ approval, Cargill and Continental promised to abandon the tournament system that pits poultry growers against each other by paying more to growers whose chickens gain the most weight with the least feed.
