BeefCast update for May 26, 2010, Putting the brakes on the cattle market slide

How can we put the brakes on the recent cattle markets price slide? Darrell Mark, University of Nebraska Livestock Economist, helps us out.

Also, it may be difficult to tell if the climate change debate is heating up or cooling down. Regardless, the climate change issue is very important to animal agriculture when we consider the potential impact of pending legislation and EPA regulations. So today I want to share with you a three part series focused on this critical issue. We draw upon the decades of experience of climate scientist Jay Lehr of The Heartland Institute.

I also want you to weigh in with your thoughts on the debate by sending me your thoughts.
