BeefCast update for January 22, 2010, A look back at 2009 and a look ahead to 2010

Well, the countdown to the premier beef industry event is nearly over. I hope that you have made your plans to be with us next week in San Antonio for the Cattle Industry Annual Convention and NCBA Trade Show.

This year’s event looks to be exceptional with several new features and great educational opportunities. If you’re going to be there next week, let’s catch up for a few moments and talk about how we at BeefCast can better help you. Just drop me a note.

If you won’t be able to make it off the ranch next week, I certainly understand. So don’t worry, we will bring you the conversations and latest information on industry issues and emerging technologies right here at BeefCast.

Link to blogAs we replace the wall calendar and the doodle sheet that covers our desktop, it is a good time to review procedures, policies and priorities. This is the time of year that our employees seem to be the most open to new ideas—and the most accepting of change. To maximize this opportunity, many operations schedule company-wide meetings to communicate with all the employees and provide a forum for feedback and discussion.
