MRJ-- How many NCBA members did not even know they were members, but had dues deducted from their checks in order to sell to certain feeders or buyers?... You weren't an NCBA member you couldn't feed in that feedlot-- or sell to that feedlot...In order to belong to many state cattle organiztions they made you join NCBA....Now that much of this is ending so is NCBA's membership...

Thats how it works in Mn if you want to join the Mn State Cattlemens Assn you have to pay the NCBA dues I think it was around $180.00 for both what a bargain.NOT.

I dont know why did they?Surely you arent using one of ~SH~ ole tricks and comparing cattle men to a lemming,16700 cattle men, and you would have me believe they are all wrong?and you are right ..........good luck


Your answer is very revealing, HAY MAKER. The lemmings didn't know either. They were just blindly following their mindless leader. So I don't suppose one could say the lemmings were all wrong. Just very ignorant.

But you are right. Let's not compare real cattlemen and women to lemmings.


Thats better now you are talkin sense,you may not want to hear this but these R CALFERS come from all walks of life ,judges lawyers ,vets,politicians and uneducated cowboys like myself,they are all good folks just trying to make the cattle business better for all ........good
luck PS they are any thing but blindless followers.

Is Judge Cebull a member Haymaker?

Can anyone tell me how many cattlemen there are in the US ? I would think 16,700 is a pretty small percentage !

It has been reported that the honorable judge was made an Honorary member shortly after March 7th. They felt it was deserving for the speed in which he released his 30 page report (the day after). This remarkable speed of course would not have been possible without the numerous evenings spent in consultation with the members of the above mentioned group at a local pool hall. The ceremony inducting the honorable judge was done at an informal gathering at Jake's steak House. The festivities hit a bit of a speed bump when it was discovered that Jake's had run out of American CAB the day before and had instead been dining on quality Canadian Sterling Silver beef. All fears were eased when Leo admitted that despite R-Calf claims, Canadian beef was safe and in fact it could well be from cattle owned by an R-Calf member.

It was reported that the confused honorable Judge was seen leaving scratching his head and remarking that now he truly was confused. :lol:

If there are 850000 cattlemen then less than 2 percent belong to R-calf. Sounds like 98% of the cattlemen think for themselves !!

Never thought much of the extreme left or right in most controversial things. They seem to get there knickers in a knot over the trivial things and loose sight of what the origanol prob. was :shock: I :p
