BeefCast update for October 30, 2009, What is re-energizing our cattle markets?

Tag terms:
Last week provided an excellent opportunity to regain a fresh perspective on the future of our industry. It was a pleasure for me to take part in the some of the activities of the National FFA Convention. There is nothing quite like the enthusiasm and excitement of tens of thousands of young people focused on feeding a growing world population through agriculture advancements.

Even though enthusiasm and excitement will not cause the challenges we face to disappear without hard work, I believe that positive thinking will do much more than negative thinking. It is great to see the way that FFA is developing our next generation of industry leaders.

Remember to sign up today for the upcoming CAB Feeding Quality Forum. The good folks at CAB have put together a phenomenal program. It is certainly one that you don’t want to miss.

  • Link to blog"The "Bickering" Family": by Don Tyler. "We know these people. The family with the siblings who can’t seem to see eye-to-eye on anything and end up bickering over who, even now that they are in their 40’s, got the larger ice cream cone at the State Fair when they were 8 and 10 years old. (Yes, that’s an actual argument that I heard…..)."
