Update for January 22, 2009

These past couple of weeks have been a great chance to catch up with some of you on the road. I really appreciate everyone who has stopped to say hello. The conferences in Denver have yielded some great discussions with several industry leaders.

Trent Fredenburg with Monty Brown of U.S. Meat Export Federation

And of course next week we'll be at the Cattle Industry Annual Convention in Phoenix.

Hopefully you have made plans to be in the sunny warm weather with us there. If you can’t make it, don’t worry, we'll be bringing some great conversations back to you. Remember, we always welcome your thoughts at Feedback@BeefCast.com.

Ps. if you are going to be away from your farm for any length of time, be sure to check the batteries in your thermostat before you go. If you don’t and it is -10 degrees, your pipes will probably freeze.
