Chicken wars rage in Oklahoma

McCurtain County in Oklahoma is home to a feed mill, a hatchery and a processing plant at Broken Bow providing work for 1,100 Tyson Foods employees. It’s also the centre of high legal drama for the American poultry industry as Tyson Foods Inc. squares off against former growers. According to Tulsa World newspaper, a jury awarded seven growers the first round and US$7.3 million a month ago, and another group has a shot at the poultry giant this month.
