    “We've waited nine years, and we've lost a lot of producers

    Agman, I sure would like to be able to have some email dialog with you if it's ok with you. I'm traveling, and can't send you an email from this computer since I don't know your email address. So, please send me an email through this site if you can, and I will get back to you. Thanks in...

    Don Tyson likes to fly a lot.

    Did you see the news blurb in yesterday's USA Today entitled, "Flying into the sunset?" Interesting comments about Don Tyson. "Some executives retain rights to company-paid personal flights (in public companies) after they retire. Under a consulting agreement that calls for a maximum 20 hours...

    U.S. Beef Production in the Future

    The population in the U.S. and in the world is going to continue to grow. If per capita beef consumption just stays the same as today as the population increases, then more total pounds of beef must be produced and processed. Do you believe that total beef production will be increased enough...

    the nurse in me could not resist!!!

    Howdy! I eat bananas all the time, and I didn't realize they were doing so much for me. Thanks for the great info. Think I'll go eat a banana. By the way, I usually have milk and a cinnamon roll with my banana. Does that cancel out the banana? If it does, oh well! It's a habit I don't...

    Questions for Montana and Wyoming about MT and WY

    So, what's going to happen to all of the ranches in the next 10-20 years that are currently being operated by folks in their 60's and 70's? If a lot of ranches are being sold for hunting now, how is Montana going to do its share in the future of expanding beef production to help feed the...

    Questions for Montana and Wyoming about MT and WY

    Thanks for the comment ranchwife! I'm really curious. If you don't mind, about how many kids are in the school system in your town of Ennis in grades K through 12? How many schools house these students? 2? 3? If very few childbearing-age folks are left in your area, then it would seem to...

    Questions for Montana and Wyoming about MT and WY

    Thanks for the info, Kate! Very interesting. Maybe we will get some more comments. What about the ranchers in Wyoming? Is there very much merger/acquisition/consolidation activity going on among them, or is it mostly selling out to developers and land trusts? Thanks again - in advance. :)

    Questions for Montana and Wyoming about MT and WY

    Howdy! I've been reading in USA Today a lot recently (including today) about how OLD! the population is becoming in Montana and Wyoming compared to most other states. (Is "Oldtimer" really old?) :???: :???: Ha! They say you are in the top 10 oldest states with most of the group being on...

    What does it take to be a real cowboy?

    Hello ropesanddogs and Soapweed! I was a little vague on purpose "ya'll," and it's great to know that the two of you have your priorities in the right order. That's exactly what I was hoping you would say, ropesanddogs, and I'm glad to know you are on the same page with us, Soapweed. I have...

    What does it take to be a real cowboy?

    Wow! Hey "ropesanddogs," you familiar with Robert Earl's song that goes, "the road goes on forever, and the party never ends?" Well, it's been a long time since I started this thread, and there have been many great posts about someone being a cowboy. And it just seems to keep on going, which...

    Hi folks! I realize it is only their opinion and there weren't a lot of details given, but I wanted to share with you something I heard on the radio this morning. I was listening to a radio interview of a Morgan Stanley manager, and the discussion finally made its way to the energy sector...

    Wonder why there's no R-CALF-type org on the Texas border?

    I wonder why there is no R-CALF-type organization headquartered in South Texas with the mission of closing and keeping closed the Mexican border? Maybe no one has thought about it yet. What if NAFTA and CAFTA expands and includes a SAFTA (South American Free Trade Agreement)? Brazil's beef...

    Starving cattle in FL now being mentioned in Schiavo case

    Once again, please tell me it isn't true! Last Saturday I reported in this chat room about the lady in Kentucky who had 80+ head of cattle that starved to death. Now she is in big trouble, and the beef industry got another black eye. This morning, on a talk radio station, people were using...

    Question for Agman or anyone else on retail beef sales

    Once again, I'm not suggesting a price war or anything like that. Everyone knows it costs more to produce a pound of beef. The question is, "Assuming the beef industry is interested in not losing more ground in per capita consumption to pork and chicken, what does the price of beef have to be...

    Question for Agman or anyone else on retail beef sales

    I believe that the beef industry also has to think about the competition for the consumer dollar it is in with pork and chicken a little more in this equation. In other words, yes, all things staying the same except for a greater supply of beef, maybe it would go to 2:1. However, if the price...
