         ConAgra Foods, Inc. ("ConAgra Foods") makes this filing to amend
certain information previously reported by ConAgra Foods. This filing
constitutes Amendment No. 2 to the Statement on Schedule 13D of ConAgra Foods
("Amendment No. 2"). ConAgra Foods amends such prior Schedule 13D reports with
respect to the Common Stock, par value $.01 per share (the "Common Stock"), of
Pilgrim's Pride Corporation ("Pilgrim's Pride") by adding the following
information to the items indicated:


         On August 3, 2005, ConAgra Foods entered into a purchase agreement (the
"Purchase Agreement") with Pilgrim's Pride for a proposed sale and transfer to
Pilgrim's Pride of the 15,443,054 shares of Common Stock by ConAgra Foods.

         The Purchase Agreement provides for a purchase price of the Common
Stock of $31.23735 per share and contains representations and warranties and
indemnities by Pilgrim's Pride and ConAgra Foods, and other provisions
customarily included in stock purchase agreements. A copy of the Purchase
Agreement is filed as Exhibit 1.1 hereto.

         The closing of the purchase of the Common Stock pursuant to the
Purchase Agreement is expected to occur on or about August 9, 2005.

         Simultaneously with entering into the Purchase Agreement, Pilgrim's
Pride entered into an underwriting agreement with one or more underwriters
pursuant to which Pilgrim's Pride will issue and sell to the underwriter(s) for
cash in connection with a firm commitment underwriting of up to 15,443,054
shares of Common Stock.

         The sale of the Common Stock by ConAgra Foods to Pilgrim's Pride is
subject to customary conditions concerning accuracy of representations and
warranties, performance of obligations and other matters. The sale of the Common
Stock as provided in the Purchase Agreement will not occur if the Purchase
Agreement is terminated. The Purchase Agreement will terminate (a) upon the date
upon which the parties mutually agree in writing to terminate the Purchase
Agreement, (b) upon the date on which the underwriting agreement referred to
above is terminated in accordance with its terms or (c) if the closing of the
sale of the Common Stock by ConAgra Foods to Pilgrim's Pride does not occur on
or before August 23, 2005, whichever occurs first.

         Upon closing of the proposed sale of Common Stock by ConAgra Foods to
Pilgrim's Pride, or termination of the Purchase Agreement, ConAgra Foods will
file an amendment to this Schedule 13D reflecting such sale or termination.


                  (a) Currently, ConAgra Foods is the beneficial owner of an
aggregate of 15,443,054 shares of Common Stock constituting approximately 23.2%
of the outstanding Common Stock (based on 66,555,773 shares of Common Stock
outstanding on July 22, 2005, as provided in the Pilgrim's Pride Form 10-Q for
the quarter ended July 3, 2005).

                  (b) The table below summarizes the number of shares of Common
Stock over which ConAgra Foods currently has sole voting and dispositive power
