There were a lot of universal truths that I discovered for the first time that came on like epiphanies. As I’ve grown older, the epiphanies have become more infrequent, and a lot of them could be categorized as epiphanies on how life is not always fair. </div> <div class="og_rss_groups"><ul class="links"><li class="og_links first last"><a href="/blog/my-view-country"> My View From The Country</a></li> </ul></div><p><a href="http://beefmagazine.com/blog/my-epiphanies-today-tend-be-more-painful" target="_blank">read more</a></p> http://beefmagazine.com/blog/my-epiphanies-today-tend-be-more-painful#comments People Employee Management My View From The Country Fri, 25 Apr 2014 01:36:00 +0000 74211 at http://beefmagazine.com 5 Beef Myths In Opinion Column Debunked http://beefmagazine.com/blog/5-beef-myths-opinion-column-debunked <div class="node-body blog-body">A BEEF Daily reader recently sent me a copy of the Center For Science In The Public Interest’s (CSPI) Nutrition Action Health Letter from April 2014. She was upset by a column written by Michael F.

This is a topic that has been covered extensively on the BEEF Daily blog, so it’s not new news to any of you, I’m sure. However, when I travel the country speaking to agricultural groups, I’m always surprised when someone comes up to me after a speech and reveals to me that they had no idea of HSUS’ deceptive tactics. These conversations motivate me to keep educating both ranchers and the general public about the less-than-noble efforts of this animal rights activist group. </div> <div class="og_rss_groups"><ul class="links"><li class="og_links first last"><a href="/blog/beef-daily">BEEF Daily</a></li> </ul></div><p><a href="http://beefmagazine.com/blog/sign-petition-remove-hsus-non-profit-list" target="_blank">read more</a></p> http://beefmagazine.com/blog/sign-petition-remove-hsus-non-profit-list#comments People Animal Activists BEEF Daily Thu, 17 Apr 2014 10:00:00 +0000 73781 at http://beefmagazine.com Industry At A Glance: Public Attitudes On The Current Tax Code http://beefmagazine.com/regulation/industry-glance-public-attitudes-current-tax-code <div class="field-byline"> By Nevil Speer, Western Kentucky University </div> <div class="node-body article-body">In a recent poll of the general public, Investor’s Business Daily asked respondents their attitude on the current tax code.
