    Recipes Requested

    Here is the bread recipe mentioned as being pretty easy, FH. I found it in the "PARTYLINE COOK BOOK' I bought at a silent auction at an NCBA convention in Charlotte, NC in 1999. Wish I had made such notations in all the cookbooks I have! This one is interesting because many of the contributors...

    Can't send PM

    Does someone know how to find the 'PM icon'? I tried to send a PM, and the message "no PM icon found" came up, and I didn't see a way to find it. Probably missing something, but noticed others have had problems, too. Thanks for any help. mrj

    Saving time??????

    Time to wrangle horses before going to vaccinate some calves. Gate to the yard is open, but they will go right to the barn for their oats. A nice brisk morning, horses feeling frisky. Run south to the water tank, notice the open gate, and it's off to the opening! Old cowboy in pickup pulling...

    Western Heritage Event

    We are remembering our western heritage this week end with two events. One in Ft. Pierre today and again tomorrow. Excellent demonstrations of crafts, such as saddle making in progress, lots of braided tack by local people. Old E. C. Lee saddles on display, as well as buggies, wagons, etc...

    'modern' food

    This might relate to the great piece posted by Soapweed lamenting consumers' lack of understanding of facts about food production, in a way. I served some watermelon as a snack yesterday afternoon, a favorite food of our great grand daughter, age three and a half years. When she saw the...

    RAIN

    I've been told we got about .90" of rain since sometime during the night. It came nice and gentle, off and on all day and as it got dark tonight. Pretty timely, as grass had appeared to be losing ground lately. A true blessing! We are about 8 miles north of exit 170 on I-90, and am guessing it...

    nuke agreement w. Iran

    I just saw Ben Sasse, R, Senator from NE on Fox News talking about the dangers of this treaty proposal (actually give away, imo). He has some very good points and appears a good young conservative member of our government. I believe he is in his first term. Maybe the show will repeat this...

    backward and/or upside down calves

    Is there any information on causes or reasons for that presentation at birth? We have had several in heifers this year. Lost a few. A few caesarians, and a few pulled at home. lose some, win some, it seems. Varying sizes, I believe. It will be interesting to see what happens with the cows...

    Not enough help.....or was the 'moon sign' wrong?

    Part of our crew set out last Friday to bring home about 500 cows and their calves for weaning. They knew they were short handed, and it would be dicey getting them home before dark, given the distance, big pasture, etc. They did get them into a different pasture, but had to give up before...

    USMEF serves US beef and pork in Japan

    I appreciate the US Meat Export Federation (USMEF) serving free meals to people left homeless by the earthquake and tsunami in Japan. That seems a very appropriate use of Beef Checkoff and the partnering federal dollars. Cattle producers are well known to use their own money to help people, and...

    A Rare Positive Point

    There is an interesting report in Drovers CattleNetwork today. Link to it at http://www.cattlenetwork.com.cattle-news/latest/Cattle-raiser-convention-features-session-on-beef-product-development-trend-118518200.html. It reports on a session presented by Dr. Molly McAdams who is a branding and...

    Hunger in the USA

    We seem to be inundated with stories of ever more people going hungry in the USA. Implied is that it is through no fault of their own, which may well be the case for some, notably small children and those too ill to work, yet too 'wealthy' to have access to food programs (can that happen???)...

    Breath of Fresh Air

    Contrary to what one would think from much comment on this forum, there are some good editorials and stories about the attacks on NCBA. Pete Crow has had several in Western Livestock Journal, and this Guest Editorial in the Cattle Business Weekly by Bill Donald, a cattle producer in MT...

    Be careful what you ask for!

    The Food and Safety Enhancement Act of 2009, if passed as it now stands, will surely make people in the business of raising food animals consider that trite phrase once again. THis is a short version of news release from NCBA in Beef Magazine Cow Calf Weekly email. NCBA is urging the House...

    Speaking of health care systems.......

    How would you Canadians posting here rate your health care system? We in the USA are probably going to get much the same system, if 'O' has his way. Hopefully, it won't be so bad as it would surely have been had T Daschle not been caught at his tax evasion. I don't have much confidence in...

    Difference between "redistribution of wealth" and

    There is considerable angst in the country against attacks on Obama's comments that "we need to share the wealth" because, as the Obama supportrs claim, "our tax dollars go to rebuild Iraq, and put money in fat-cat bankers pockets already". One, the "wealth spreading", a.k.a. Redistribution of...

    Among "firsts" and/or "mosts" in USA....

    Unquestionnably, Obama is the MOST secretive candidate for President!! What is he so afraid we might learn about him and/or his agenda? mrj

    While watching the debate tonight..........

    it just might be interesting to notice how Obama seems very controlled and careful not to reveal what he really believes from either personal life experiences, or his own thoughts on issues. He seems to be holding back and cautious, not open at all, careful to make no quick comment about his...

    "Real" change???

    All this talk about "real" change.....yet Obama came up through the traditional 'minority' ranks....work for ACORN, manipulate elections to get into IL Senate. Same to get into US Senate, taking us back in time to typical OLD STYLE CHICAGO DIRTY POLITICS! We do not need the 'old is new again'...

    Liberal Elite can't stand Palin

    It's so obvious: the liberal elites, you know, those who grew up either privileged or were 'deserving' of help to attend the 'right' schools and universities; travelled to other countries either to 'learn' or two 'help people'; perhaps accepted low salaried 'helping' jobs so they would later...
