Welcome and thank you for standing by. (Operator Instructions) I would like to turn the meeting over to Ruth Ann Wisener.

Ruth Ann Wisener

Good morning and thank you for joining us today for Tyson Foods’ conference call for the fourth quarter of our 2009 fiscal year.

I want to remind everyone that some of the things we talk about today will include forward-looking statements. Those statements are based on our view of the world as we know it today, which could change. I encourage you to look at today’s press release for a discussion of the risks that can affect our business.

First, Leland Tollett, our former interim President, and CEO will be joining us via telephone for opening remarks and then he will get back to his much-deserved vacation. Donnie Smith, our new President, and CEO will provide overall comments as well as segment reports for chicken and prepared foods.

Reporting on beef and pork will be Jim Lochner, our new Chief Operating Officer, followed by the financial report from CFO, Dennis Leatherby . Also joining us on the call today are Rick Greubel, Group
