DANVILLE, Ohio — An Ohio livestock company has reportedly failed to pay for livestock they purchased.

The USDA’s Grain Inspection, Packers and Stockyards Administration (GIPSA) has found evidence that B&B Livestock Company Inc., of Danville, purchased livestock and failed to pay the full purchase price for livestock within the time period required by the Packers and Stockyards (P&S) Act.

GIPSA filed a complaint against B&B Livestock Oct. 26. Phone calls were placed to B&B Livestock, but they were not returned to the Farm and Dairy.

If the allegations are admitted, or proven in an oral hearing, B&B Livestock may be ordered to cease and desist from violating the P&S Act, suspended and assessed a civil penalty.

B&B Livestock is engaged in the business of a dealer buying and selling livestock in commerce and is registered with the secretary of agriculture.
