Indirect damages to broiler and pork producers fromsupra-competitive pricing of synthetic lysine, whichis an important feed additive, are discussed in thisarticle. Indirect damages occur in fundamentallydifferent ways in the two industries because thebroiler industry is vertically integrated while thepork industry was dominated by independent producersduring the 1992–1995 time period.
