    I would like an economical weed eater that attaches to a 4-wheeler to trim under fences. Does anybody make such a thing?

    Faster Horses

    Re; Soapweed's 10/19 thread. Sunflower with her "nephew." I made the same mistake a few weeks ago. Soap, you're other grandchild is of the female persuasion, right?

    What do you have and what would you recommend? Have looked at an Arctic Cat 550 and a Honda Rancher and could use some wise advice.

    Good news/Bad news

    First the good news. Sold 43 bred heifers yesterday for an average of $1412. They brought $300 more than I thought they would. The bad news is that the only reason I sold them is that we are experiencing the absolute worst conditions I have seen in my 59 yrs. There is nothing but a foot or...

    Is the devil in the details?

    Now that NAIS is scrapped and the gov't is saying they will only regulate interstate movement of livestock, will they develop very restrictive rules on interstate movement? I think it is something to watch out for. BTW, you guys pushing branding as a solution, in the midwest we do not brand...

    Isn't COOL great?

    Massive losses in the feedlot sector, our two best beef importers furious with us and filing suit in the WTO, the calf market in the tank and it is painfully obvious the US consumer doesn't give a tinker's damn about a "COOL" label. Isn't it quite a coincindence that this happened shortly after...

    Cool Revisited

    The notion that the meat, from an animal a few feet across the international border, might taste different is preposterous. Certainly, there are breeding strains in regional areas of North America that deliver enhanced genetics, but those genes know no geographic boundary. Product...

    Chuck Hagel

    One of the things I try to do when involved in a group or organization is to determine where the authority lies, whether it be in a President, Chairman or Executive Committee, and either defer to that authority, seek to become a part of that authority in order to affect decision making, or...
