Item 5.  Other Events.

         ConAgra Foods, Inc. signed an agreement on June 7, 2003 to
sell its chicken business to Pilgrim's Pride Corporation. The press release
announcing the transaction, and a related Q&A posted on ConAgra Foods' website,
are attached as exhibits and incorporated by reference.

         The purchase price to be paid by Pilgrim's Pride to ConAgra Foods is
approximately $590 million. As payment for this business, ConAgra Foods expects
to receive:

          o    $100 million in cash,

          o    $235 million in shares of Pilgrim's Pride Class A stock, and

          o    $255 million in subordinated  notes,  payable by Pilgrim's Pride
               to ConAgra Foods

         The number of Class A shares issued by Pilgrim's  Pride to ConAgra
Foods as part of the payment for this business will be the lesser of 39.4
million shares or the number of shares determined by taking 45% of the estimated
purchase price, divided by the greater of (1) the volume weighted average
trading price for the period June 10,  2003  through 5 trading  days prior to
closing,  or (2) $5.35.  Pilgrim's  Pride is not required to issue more than
39.4 million Class A shares in total.  The remaining  balance of the purchase
price will be paid with the subordinated notes.

         If the average closing price for the Class A shares is less than $5.35
for the period measured prior to closing, Pilgrim's Pride is expected to provide
additional cash, notes, and/or stock to make up the difference between $5.35 and
the average share price for the period measured. If Pilgrim's Pride does not
provide additional cash, notes, and/or stock to make up that difference, ConAgra
Foods has the right to terminate the agreement.

         After the transaction, ConAgra Foods' fresh chicken requirements will
be supplied at market terms by Pilgrim's Pride for use in ConAgra Foods' branded
products. The closing of the transaction is subject to closing conditions, and
shareholders representing a majority of Pilgrim's Pride current shareholder
votes have agreed to vote in favor of the issuance of the Class A shares in the
