Tyson Foods experienced more than a 40 percent decrease in net income in the first three months of 2013, falling from $166 in the first quarter of 2012 to $95.

He also noted that raised feed prices, a dwindling demand for prepared foods, and the disappearance of international markets also contributed to the second quarter financial shortfall.
