USDA: Ranchers can pursue IBP By CURT ANDERSON Tlie Associated Press WASHINGTON — Cattle producers should proceed with a federal lawsuit claiming the nation's largest meat packer is engaged in monopolistic practices, Agriculture Secretary Dan Glickman says. Legal documents filed on Clickman's behalf say the 10 cattlemen who brought the lawsuit in Montgomery, Ala., against IBP Inc. have .no recourse at the Agriculture Department, even though the agency has an antitrust arm set up to regulate packers and stockyards. The producers who are suing IBP and attempting to represent the class of all cattlemen said Monday that Glickman's stance was a significant victory that should allow the case to go forward. Quota placed on wheat gluten imports Three-year quota will protect U.S. producers from cheaper imports By- LIBBY QUAID The Associated Press WASHINGTON — The Clinton administration announced Monday it has taken action to halt wheat gluten imports that have devastated U.S. producers. President Clinton signed a three-year quota and urged U.S. Trade Representative Charlene Barshefsky and Agriculture Secretary Dan Glickman to begin talks on subsidies and high tariffs that allow the European Union to sell gluten more cheaply than American producers can make it. The EU now has 30 percent of the American market for wheat gluten, the fine powder used in bakery products and animal feed. Midwest Grain, based in Atchison, Kan., is the nation's largest wheat gluten manufacturer, followed by Manildra Milling Corp. of Fairway, Kan. "This action provides the U.S. industry with relief from surging import competition and is fully consistent with our international trade obligations," Barshefsky said. The quota, recommended in March by the U.S. International Trade Commission, will be 126 million pounds of wheat gluten in the first year, rising by 6 percent annually. Prices had fallen to 38 cents per pound when the three- member commission voted unanimously to ask for the quota. "It means a lot to us — it means we've got three years of breathing room," said Ladd Seaberg, president of the U.S. Wheat Gluten Industry Council, which filed the complaint that resulted in the commission's ruling. But the administration departed from the ITC's original request, which was for a four-year quota with limits on imports from the European Union, Australia and other countries. The three-year limit applies to all countries excluding free-trade agreement partners and developing nations. Canada, Mexico and Israel are among countries that would be ex- "It's swinging our way, big time," said Mike Callicrate, a plaintiff who runs a cattle feedlot in St. Francis, Kan. "The stand taken by the secretary gives us hope." The lawsuit contends Dakota City, Neb.-based IBP is violating antitrust laws by using large purchases of captive supplies of cattle — rather than bidding on open auction markets — to unfairly depress prices paid to producers. IBP controls more than a third of U.S. beef packing and last year processed more than 9 billion pounds of beef and pork. Its total sales last year were $13.2 billion. In a written statement Monday, IBP said it was "disappointed but not surprised" at Glickman's comments and contended that the secretary "abdicated his responsibility" by deferring to an Alabama judge. ON THE RECORD eluded from the quota. Seaberg, who is president of Midwest Grain, said the shorter time frame puts pressure on the industry to perform. But the law allows producers to seek one to five years more relief if needed, he noted. Rep. Jerry Moran, R-Kan., said that while Clinton somewhat softened the ITC recommendation, "it was done in a way that significantly reduces imports of gluten from the European community." "I want to know that we're going to enforce the trade agreements that we have in place before the administration seeks my vote in favor of additional trade agreements," Moran said. "I think the administration took a big step in enforcing this past agreement." Hospital report Salina Regional Health Center SANTA FE ADMISSIONS — Erma M. Mathews and Loren R.
