    South Korea backs away from beef trade deal

    You don't win a negotiation with the Asians by cramming something down their throats. They are very patient and will get even.

    From R-CALF

    Also wonder about GIPSA. R-CALF says only thing producer gets in exchange is market access. That shouts market controlling monopsony.

    Farm Bill for NCBAers

    An identical letter to the one below was sent to Peterson and Goodlatte. Notice how polite they are. The Honorable George W. Bush President The White House Washington, D. C. 20500 Dear President Bush: In light of repeated misinformation surrounding the proposed prohibition on packer...

    What Will R-CALF's Implosion Bring?

    Ok, so my timing was off. Still applies. Chuck as chairman did nothing. And what is it being used for now? Who dropped the ball? If is was serious, it deserved immediate attention. If it didn't get immediate attention it must not have been considered serious, or it was held back to use at an...

    R-CALF Losses Affiliates

    I know some good R-CALF members from Texas. Just not very many there. And note that I was not talking about Texans in general. Just IC members. Crazy how in an earlier letter they gave Kiker "unconditional" support. That's pretty far reaching. IC was really working hard for COOL when the USDA...

    What Will R-CALF's Implosion Bring?

    Apparently you missed this right from Cattlenetwork.com on Jolley Five Minutes with Randy Stevenson. http://www.cattlenetwork.com/content.asp?contentid=110476 As an active R-CALF member and Region II Director you’ve undoubtedly been close to the recent change in leadership. It’s created a lot...

    R-CALF Losses Affiliates

    Don't trust the blog. If all of the donations from IC members to R-CALF suddenly dried up, would they notice? Has there ever been a calf sale in Texas. I don't recall one.

    What Will R-CALF's Implosion Bring?

    Tam, I have never seen any minutes except those posted on the internet. "The Minutes" that I referred to are the ones posted on SwiftDonkeys. I never saw them before. I say that if you read them carefully, they are condemnatory of the board (under Kiker) rather than Bullard. Bullard BECAME the...

    What Will R-CALF's Implosion Bring?

    You are presenting this as if you believe the board under the leadership of Kiker did not know what the financials were. Go back and read those minutes. Was there any place in them where Bullard was ordered to present financials on an accrual basis. NO. That was a BOARD FAILURE under the...

    R-CALF Losses Affiliates

    Your information is really defective. There are only 300 R-CALF members in all of Texas. South Dakota has about 4000. IC of Texas has continually had dual affiliation with R-CALF and NCBA. Now they are affiliated only with NCBA. R-CALF does not count members of affiliates as members of R-CALF...

    What Will R-CALF's Implosion Bring?

    And I would guess that you're another one of those that doesn't like majority rule. Simple example. Bill Bullard had a majority approval when he sent his letter to the USDA on Jan 7 Chuck Kiker did not even let the board see his letter before he sent it to the USDA. Should majority rule, or...

    Apparently those who left didn't like the idea that the majority should rule.

    I don't think most of the details are anybody's business except R-CALF members. And I am sharing information with those members who are interested.

    R-CALF Losses Affiliates

    There are DEFINITELY some things on there that are not true. But what is most condemning is a lot of things that are left out. You know that old thing about the truth, the whole truth. Well, there may be a few truthful tidbits in it, but it is VERY far from the WHOLE truth. The IC of Texas...

    What Will R-CALF's Implosion Bring?

    I agree with you on that one. I hope they can change it. It wasn't this current board that made that rule. At least allow them to make certain things public by majority vote. There are some things (personnel discussions, etc) that need to be secret, but not others.

    What Will R-CALF's Implosion Bring?

    I would believe this statement better. From Cattlenetwork.com Jolley's Five minutes with Randy Stevenson. As an active R-CALF member and Region II Director you’ve undoubtedly been close to the recent change in leadership. It’s created a lot of discussion. Can you shed some light on what...

    R-CALF on GIPSA study

    There is no data IN THE REPORT that SUPPORTS the quote. There is a list of SEVEN sources of data in the R-CALF release that prove it FALSE. The GIPSA study uses NO DATA at all to make its claim. I am saying there is NO DATA in the GIPSA study to support the claim. The data to support the claim...

    R-CALF on GIPSA study

    Where is GIPSA's data to prove that AMAs provide a reliable and consistent supply of quality cattle. Oh, couldn't find it! That's because there isn't any. IT IS A FALSE CLAIM. GIPSA is lying (by your own standards) Watch the dance. He won't answer. He can't answer. Because the truth will...

    R-CALF on GIPSA study

    Let me make it simple. We're talking about the GIPSA study and you keep diverting. STICK TO THE STUDY The GIPSA study did not use data to back up its conclusions. They gathered the data, then used OPINIONS of people they interviewed for their conclusions. Show me any DATA used in the study to...
