How Much Is One Man’s Sausage Worth? Bidding War Is Underway

We are talking about Jimmy Dean. The man behind Jimmy Dean Sausage.

There’s a whole generation of sausage eating people who maybe don’t even know Jimmy Dean was a singer. Oh yes he was, and I mean a big time artist.

The song ‘Big Bad John’ was huge. It went to number one on both the country and pop charts. It held that distinction for many years.

Dean was a singer, actor and a business man. His big business was sausage.

Now two meat processing heavyweights are engaged in a bidding war for the maker of Jimmy Dean sausages and Ball Park hot dogs. Hillshire Brands says it’s holding separate talks with Pilgrim’s Pride and Tyson Foods.

Monday Pilgrim’s Pride raised its bid to $6.8 billion. That tops the $6.2 billion offer Tyson made last week.

Hall of Famer Jimmy Dean was recently honored with a museum.
