Update for January 21, 2008

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 and Indianapolis have yielded some great discussions with several dairy producers.
Trent Fredenburg with Monty Brown of U.S. Meat Export Federation
Many of you have shared with me the challenges you are facing: uncertain labor regulation, volatile price fluctuations in input markets, lower milk prices, and maintaining proper herd health and well being. We are continually working to help you find the solutions that you need to make your business more successful.

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.
