I don't doubt that Carrie loves animals, and I never said she didn't do some positive things with her donations. But my the very nature of donating to HSUS, she is actually hurting her father who...

Thank you, everyone, for the kind words and thoughtful advice. Scarlett and I are enjoying reading through them this morning.

Tunde,

I appreciate you having the courage to state your thoughts about beef production on this blog. I can tell you are speaking from the heart, so I hope you will also know that my...

Darcy, it's not that I think it's too difficult or expensive. I just allowed myself a little time to gripe about the added labor/expense during this time of year! I should have added that my...

I wanted to add that despite the declining dollars available in the Beef Checkoff Program, it appears producers feel confident that these dollars are being used effectively. Read more about it...

Thanks for sharing this information with me. I think the point we can focus on is he is promoting cattle grazing as a positive for the land. Instead of focusing on his struggles with that theory,...

Thanks, Kenny. Very good points!

That's too bad about your son. I have had similar situations with cousins of mine. I would tell him that the likelihood of horse meat in his ground beef would be slim to none. In addition to the...

Still gluten-free like always. Once you get a celiacs diagnosis, there isn't much changing it. But, I get to eat a lot of beef, so who really misses the bread? Thanks for asking.

I have thoroughly enjoyed all of the personal experiences and antidotes, and I'm glad I'm not the only one to get compared to a bred heifer. My grandpa was the first to make the "puller and chains...

It sounds like you are familiar with both cases. Thanks for weighing in. To me, PETA still printed the comics with the intent of passing them out to children -- whether they were there are not isn...

Many of you forget that in South Dakota, we can get blizzards well into May. And, if you're in the seedstock business, nobody wants to buy a June bull calf. Yes, calving in summer might be easier...

I believe 30/week refers to how many animals have been killed in the shelter's history.

Love all of your stories and sentiments about what your old barns mean to you. It always brightens my days to hear from readers, especially when the topic is close to my heart. Thank you all!

This is really great advice, and I know Michelle will appreciate it. She is very dedicated to her craft, and I'm very proud to call her the illustrator of my children's book. She really makes...

$200,000-300,000 sounds a little vague to me. Would it be possible to get the expense report or final report on cost for this project. The AR I read says $2.27 million and as John Schafer pointed...

Wednesday, July 10, 2013 - 11:08

Thanks for clarifying this, John. I appreciate you taking the time to explain this. I agree that we absolutely NEED transparency in the checkoff. Producers deserve the right to know exactly how...

If I can clarify anything I've written in my blog, please let me know, Anonymous. Most of the information presented is quotes from readers, NCBA and CBB, so I'm not sure where the discrepancy lies...

I would also like to encourage everyone to keep this conversation civil. Please be reminded that my blog's sole purpose is for beef producers to discuss important items of the day. This is, in...

Please, correct me if I'm wrong, but the proposed report I have in my hands from NCBA reads $300,967 from the Federation of State Beef Councils AND $1,976,033 from the Cattlemen's Beef Board. This...

I'm certainly not bashing another industry. Instead, I see pork doing that to us by price comparing our porterhouse to theirs to convince consumers that pork should be at the center of the plate....
