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. According Tyson CEO Donnie Smith, more consumers opted to buy the meat company’s less expensive chicken products, which was reflected in the company’s poor beef sales. 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.
