BeefCast update for February 4, 2010, A Look Into the Future of the Cattle Industry

Last week was very exciting. The trip to San Antonio, Texas for the Cattle Industry Annual Convention was extremely valuable. I truly enjoyed the chance to catch up with many of you and gain your perspectives. If we weren’t able to connect last week, drop me a message to let me know what’s on your mind and how we can help.

I am excited to bring you numerous conversations from the event. We are beginning our coverage with a look into the future of the cattle industry with six leaders and innovators including: Paul Bennett, Knoll Crest Farms; Homer Buell, Shovel Dot Ranch; Dave DeLaney, King Ranch; James Herring, Friona Industries; Wesley Batista, JBS; Molly McAdams, H-E-B. Join the conversation here. I personally feel this session was the best in recent years.

Not only are the cow and calf more likely to become injured, ill or even die during a difficult delivery, but pulling calves means more time spent on individual animals that could be spent tending to the whole herd."
