My experience with life has taught me that if you are going to work hard for a living and if you need physical strength and endurance to do it, you need red meat in your diet on a daily basis. Over the course of my years I have witnessed any number of people who will not eat meat and for the most part they just don't have the stamina to deliver when physical strength is needed to do the job. On top of this, they often can be the most cantankerous and ill natured people that you might ever want to meet. At any rate, my experience in the job force has borne this out. I am certainly not saying that this is scientific data which I am submitting but it is what I have personally observed.

As a farmer and rancher on the plains of north central North Dakota it is only natural that I would promote beef anyway, and I am proud to do so. A few years ago one of our Wilson double deck cattle trailers had a bumper sticker on it which I particularly liked and I want to quote it for all of you readers. It said and I quote:

BEEF, -- BECAUSE THE WEST WASN"T WON ON SALAD

I always thought that this was so true and meaningful and that it was deserving of being shared.
