ot, if all those affadavits (previously required and provided...) were all it took to open up the asian export market, why aren't they accepting them now?
and to whom were they provided? the packer sure never saw them and the packer is who does the actual exporting of the beef.
i guess my question is, if the cow/calf guy has all this documentation (and has had all this time), what happens to it? the feedlot trashes it? and if the feedlot has, in the past, trashed it, then it evidently wasn't required by asia to export the product. because most packers don't have any such thing, never have had, from the the feedlot.
prior to the washington cow closure of the export markets, if the packers who provided the product didn't require/have the documentation, where did the asians get it from?
i just don't get it! :roll:
