Motley, MN Sale Raises $12,000 for R-CALF USA Litigation Fund


Billings, MT ~ On Friday, February 18, Tri County Auction Market in Motley, MN raised $12,000 for R-CALF USA by auctioning off four donated calves. Auction market owners/operators and sale hosts Wayne Hoffman and Joe Varner said, “R-CALF USA is doing a great job representing the U.S. cattle industry. We wanted to give producers in this area an opportunity to support the effort.”


Les and Mary Bell, Motley, MN donated a commercial replacement heifer for the sale saying, “Last year we sold heifers for $1200. We figure if we don’t raise money for R-CALF USA, we won’t get to sell them for that again.”



Mike Kasten, Motley, MN donated a Charolais calf for the auction saying, “Any cattleman worth his salt would donate a calf to R-CALF USA. Because of this organization we have a great market. One calf is one percent of my calf crop. I can afford to give one percent of my calf crop away for a better price for the rest of them.” In addition to donating the calf, Kasten wrote a check to R-CALF USA for an additional $250.



Roy Bell of Leader, MN also donated a calf. Bell and Jerry Swartz, R-CALF’s Region VII director from Minnesota, were involved in a friendly competition prior to the sale. Swartz contacted every business in Henning, MN and received sale support from each one. Bell said he, in turn, contacted every business in Leader, MN and received support from all the businesses there. “Never mind that Leader is a much smaller town than Henning. I wasn’t going to let Jerry Swartz out gun the rest of us. I’m proud to say that the entire town of Leader got behind this sale,” said Bell.



The Flying W Ranch, owned by Danny Wiese donated a calf that sold multiple times during the rollover auction. “I went to Denver to the R-CALF USA convention. I never felt as good as I have about the future of the cattle business. These are good people and I’m glad to support R-CALF USA,” said Weise.



Pine River State Bank was the final bidder on Weise’s calf at $1000. Bank officials present at the sale said they intend to donate it for use in the local 4-H program.



R-CALF members involved in helping organize the sale were Danni Beer, R-CALF USA COOL Committee Chairman and Jerry Swartz, R-CALF USA Region VII director from Minnesota. “The enthusiasm for R-CALF continues to grow. Throughout Wisconsin, Iowa and Minnesota cattle producers have all expressed a growing appreciation of the R-CALF USA organization. They realize this organization is working for them,” noted Beer.

I think R-calf has learned the ways of that crooked preacher Jimmy Swaggert! The way he used to squander $$$ $out of peoples wallets!

BMR- I have proudly donated to R-CALF at several auctions. Don't regret one penny spent. They speak for the roots of the cattle industry.

I am embarrassed to admit that I once belonged to R-CALf and donated to them. The fact that I believed their lies and supported them financially will haunt me the rest of my life.

To think that I contributed to an organization that will risk the integrity of our Beef supply by standing with anti beef organizations suggesting that SRM removal does not assure beef safety ("Canadian beef is contaminated" - Lie) and claiming that USDA does not care about food safety.

Turns my stomach.

The end (keeping the Canadian border closed) justifies the means (lying about the value of SRM removal, increased surveilance, and removing positives from the food chain)

R-calf is pathetic!

Guest can't be to PROUD of donating to R-CALF as he can't even put down a name. I am sure if the likes of Pat Goggins and Lloyd DeBrucker are the grass roots of the US cattleman then their is a whole lot that are just dirt. :cowboy:

And you give Nebrusker a hard time for spreading hate. The R-CALF members I know are honest hard working cattlemen that are fed up with the way things have been going. They rightly feel that it is the only organization that is speaking only for them.
That wacky weed you are smoking is getting to you I think.

R-calf is good at spreading lies and deception. I think if things turn ugly for them in the beef business when the US finds there first case of homegrown BSE, they can always go write for the NATIONAL INQUIRIER-(lies and deception always draws readers)

Tommy you could have used all my quote. That would have told a truer picture. I belong to a cattle org. that has all size of operators that are members and operators of every size that sit on the board. We also eclect a president every year and and a new one every 2 years. we have members that don't own cattle but they are affiliates and don't vote on the issuses that affect us.

Tommy why doesn't R-CALF have elections are the ELITESTS afraid the Grasroot members can't think for themselves or are they afraid they will think for themselves.? :cowboy:


Where have I responded to Nebrusker? I don't hate the US cattleman I worry for them and the corner that R-CALF is backing us all into.

I do not know if you have responded to Nebrusker in this forum or not BMR, and the old archives of the other forum I cannot find, so if you did not ever respond to Nebrusker I apologise.
I do not know Lloyd DeBrucker or Pat Goggins, but Pat seems to be a successfull business man. Is that what you hold against him? DeBrucker bought cattle in Canada didn't he? I guess you didn't care for his money.

You Canadians are hoping we will find a homegrown case of BSE to take the heat off of your 4 Canadian origin cases. All from the same Province, right? In my opinion you should have to test every one that you want us to take, not just a small percentage.

Frustratingly slow. While U.S. dairy officials are polite in public about the progress that is being made, privately they’re frustrated, even exasperated, at the plodding pace of some industry groups, and state and federal officials.

“Bureaucracy, government, National Cattlemen’s Beef Association (NCBA) and guys who are mountain men who own cattle are four good reasons why progress is so slow,” one dairy insider says. “And because each state is responsible for registering its livestock operations, you have to work through each of those 50 little kingdoms of animal health departments first.”

Cattlemen bristle at accusations that they’re blocking animal ID efforts. “What we have been trying to stop is a massive, government-owned, cost-driven database system,” says Mike John, a Huntsville, Mo., cow/calf producer and vice president of NCBA.
