BeefCast update for January 8th, 2009, Conversations about export markets and 2009 profitability with Jim Mintert

BeefCast®
Update for January 8th, 2009

How much volatility will there be in the marketplace? What impacts will the new administration have on our industry? What will our customers be willing and able to pay for? Many of questions on our minds as we wrapped up 2008 remain. But most of us are more than happy to turn the page on a year with so much volatility and uncertainty. The paradigm we have for our industry has certainly continued to shift. And the new paradigm may be one focused on change and the ability to quickly adapt to new challenges and opportunities rather than simply a new viewpoint on our industry. Ultimately, we welcome the hope that the new year brings. So allow me this chance to wish you, your family, and your business a more successful and profitable new year.

The first few months of this new year are going to be very exciting for BeefCast. Nearly every week of our calendar features an industry leading event. This provides the great opportunity to visit with many of you as we travel. And for those of you we don’t see, not to worry we will have the crucial conversations on the topics you want to hear about back at BeefCast.com.

Be sure to take a few moments to look us up at the following upcoming events in January: International Livestock Congress, Denver; National Western Stock Show, Denver; Cattle Industry Annual Convention, Phoenix.
