Going Long on the Animal ID Outlook

May 06, 2013

Going long on the animal ID outlook
This outfit is willing to be $1.3 billion that you'll need more tags in the future.

Distillers grains and e. Coli
Any time a food safety question comes up the place to go is Doug Powell's Barfblog. He knows his stuff and darned if he isn't a pretty good writer for a college professor from Kansas. This morning, he's giving a critical look at distillers grains and e. Coli.

Poor Tyson. Again.
Tyson had another tough quarter. They blame it on the drought but they expect a much better second half. Hmmm. They don't say if it's because they hope to sell beef higher or  because they hope to buy cattle cheaper. If the former, we should all forget and forgive and wish them luck.

Strolling Heifers walks into the big time
We've not had the opportunity to attend Brattleboros' Strolling of the Heifers festivities, but it is ranked among the top 10 local festivals in the country, apparently, right up there below Cheyenne Days and Shreveport's Mudbug Madness. To put that in perspective, Olney's 40-year-old One Man Dove hunt shindig didn't even make the list.
