It makes no sense the United States imports cattle, hogs and logs from Canada, but not prescription drugs, says Montana Gov. Brian Schweitzer.

"Local pharmacists should be allowed to re-import safe, affordable prescription drugs from Canada, where American-made, U.S. taxpayer-subsidized medicine is sold for as little as half the U.S. retail price," Schweitzer said in the weekly Democratic radio address Saturday.

"For five years, the government "has had the ability to lower the prescription drug cost for every person in America by as much as 50 percent. In five years, they've not delivered. Since they continue to sit on the sidelines, states have no choice but to do it for themselves."

According to Schweitzer, a top U.S. Food and Drug Administration official said lasat year that "there has never been a single documented case of an unsafe prescription drug coming across the border from Canada," CNN reported.

All I have is Oxytet and Micotil, and we know you don't want to take that stuff. Hope your feeling better soon as choring while sick is the pitts. Unless your like Haymaker and just stay in bed for a couple of days and let the cows fend for themselves. At least that what he said to do when it get cold outside. :cowboy:

You might have told me to get out and feed in the cold but you said you would stay in by the fire until the weather got nicer. When rancher gets out of his delerious state he can back me up to that fact..

By the way how much rain have you gottten, enough to make some Hay so you don't get fatter and lazier this summer. :cowboy:

I think I am going to live. Woke up with no aches or pains, just the scours of the nose and throbbing head and few chills, feel like a millions dollars compared to the last couple days. Even enjoyed feeding, just wipes you out. Life is good, now if it would just rain to top it off. I hope no others get this bug as some on here want to scour your other end with castor oil.

The ten day forcast is for warm 50's and dry. I sure hope they are wrong on the dry part. Going to head out to set some bales out for tomorrow, wind went down and is in the 30's.

If those size 14's took "root" you'd be in a world of hurt. Bet you don't get your corn planted by Mar 1. How's the orphan calf doing?

I started to plant weekend before last but it was just too soon. I want to plant this coming weekend but it is going to be way too wet. I guess I will just wait until I can get in the field.

The bottle calf is still a bottle calf. He won’t creep feed but I am still giving him a bottle twice a day. His acting mamma is still letting him nurse some but he still wants that bottle twice a day. Some times, he is not taking the entire bottle but most times, he does. His new mamma likes to lick the bottle while I feed him. It is strange. She won’t let him nurse from the side. He has to nurse from the back while she is busy eating hay or something like that. But the guy is doing well and is over 200 pounds and looking better every day. I think hi is almost a month old and he has learned to eat green grass and chew his cud.

yes doctors suggest tamiflu for flu virus cause it is the safest medicine to use
it is to be taken in a five day course
quantities to be taken vary from old to adolescents to children
you can get more information on tamiflu from http://www.drugdelivery.ca/s3353-s-TAMIFLU.aspx

But I thought OT said these drugs were unsafe, even if they are made in the US?
