The reason we in the beef industry talk about price so much is because the threat from chicken is on the price front.

Is it the rancher down the road who sells his calves at the same time you do? One seedstock breeder suggests, since our ultimate goal is to sell beef, our competition is everything else a consumer can eat instead of beef, principally pork and poultry.
