Hey Haymaker, notice who is NOW, not listed on the bottom as a sponsor.

BILLINGS, MONT. (June 21, 2005) R-CALF USA members will have an opportunity to participate in the organization’s first summer regional meeting, slated for July 13 in Reno, Nev., titled “Now, More Than Ever: Challenges and Changes in the U.S. Cattle Industry.”

“This will be a great way for members to get updates on R-CALF efforts to address the challenges and opportunities that face the industry today,” said R-CALF USA Region IV Director Jon Wooster. “We want producers to understand the importance of becoming involved in R-CALF. We are the only national organization that works to provide fair, competitive markets and continued profitability for U.S. cattle producers, and we also work to maintain the highest standards of beef production for consumers.”

The meeting is scheduled for 3 p.m. to 7 p.m. PDT, with registration to begin at 1 p.m. PDT. The event will be held in the Mandalay Ballroom of the Circus Circus Hotel and Resort, 500 N. Sierra St., in Reno, Nev. R-CALF USA has blocked off rooms for a rate of $65. To make reservations at this rate, call 1-866-447-7728, and identify yourself as part of R-CALF USA.

First on the agenda at 3:15 p.m. PDT is Robert Taylor, Ph.D., agricultural economics professor at Auburn State University, Auburn, Ala., specializing in the industrial organization of the U.S. livestock sector. Taylor will give an overview of captive supply impacts presented in the Pickett v. Tyson case. He was an expert witness for the plaintiffs in that litigation.

Scheduled to take the floor at 4 p.m. PDT is R-CALF USA Region VI Director Max Thornsberry, a veterinarian from Richland, Mo., who will discuss the current bovine spongiform encephalopathy (BSE) situation. Thornsberry chairs R-CALF USA’s BSE Committee, and is a past president of both the Missouri Stockgrower’s Association and the Missouri Cattlemen’s Association. He owns TNT Cattle Co., a certified feeder calf preconditioning enterprise; Avanco Feeds, a veterinary and nutrition company that serves beef, dairy, swine and companion animal owners in central Missouri; and Cattle Baron Specialty Meats, a value-added meat-processing facility.

After a short break, R-CALF USA President and Co-Founder Leo McDonnell is on deck at 5:15 p.m. PDT to discuss the organization’s goals for the U.S. cattle industry. McDonnell owns Midland Bull Test in Columbus, Mont., the largest seed stock operation in North America.

At 6 p.m. PDT, R-CALF USA International Trade Committee Co-Chair Dennis McDonald will give a report on the organization’s fact-finding trip to Central America, a mission to study impacts to the U.S. cattle industry should Congress pass the U.S.-Central American-Dominican Republic Free Trade Agreement (CAFTA-DR). McDonald also is a current appointee to the U.S. Senate Agricultural Advisory Panel on Trade – WTO, and also serves as the current president of Montana Cattlemen’s Association. McDonald operates a cow/calf business and raises registered Quarter Horses near Melville, Mont.

McDonnell will close out the meeting with a few brief comments at 6:45 p.m. PDT.

Sponsors for the regional meeting include: No-Bull Enterprises; MIX30-AgriDyne; Powder River Livestock Handling Equipment; Anipro Xtraformance Feeds; and, Ainsworth Feedyards, Ainsworth, Neb.

Oh, come on Haymaker, you know you'll still buy their products. You're still buying Canadian beef and we don't support RCALF either.

Defense cross examining Taylor (paraphrasing): "Have you tested these theories Mr. Taylor"

Taylor (in response paraphrasing): "No sir, I have not"

Judge in disbelief (in response paraphrasing): "Let me see if I have this correct, you have not tested any of these theories"

Taylor (in response paraphrasing): "No sir, I have not"


Some expert witness.......YOU BET!


Why not have Callicrate as a guest speaker like the SD Stockgrowers did?

He can give a seminar on lying under oath.

SH - Would you care to enlighten us on how to test a theory?

The phrase "Untested Theory" is a total joke. :???:

R-cult doesn't have much for sponsers, do they? Who would want to be associated with liars anyway? Pfizer sure doesn't.

SH, I learned about theories in science class in hich school. I'm not sure if you had science, or even high school for that matter, but if you did, try to remember what happens to a theory after it has been tested. What is it now? :???: :shock:

A theory either becomes a proven fact or remains a hypothesis depending on the conclusions of the research.

Robert Taylor could not prove any of his theories with real life examples. Typical of the "factually void".

Get to your point ankle biter instead of pretending to know how to set a trap!

I'm boycotting Pfizer, not because of R-CALF, but because Pfizer is the major beneficiary of the Kelo vs New London Supreme Court decision on eminent domain. Pfizer is the the anchor industry in the new development that New London wants built and has used eminent domain to get land for.

OCM,
Yes, you are right on the Kelo vs New London Supreme Court decision on eminent domain. Not many folks know Pfizer was up to their eye balls on this deal......so much for living in a free country! BSE will not affect this industry anywhere close to this Bull feces decision! We had better circle the wagons on this deal and let the inspectors deal with BSE!! :mad:

Do you think NCBA will drop them as a strategic alliance partner because of this?
