We need more Competition and the Courage to join forces and support each other.


The independence of cattle farmers and ranchers is on life support. Once it is gone, we become serfs. The old plantation system is being reborn right before our eyes. We will be sharecroppers like in the days of old. We must then learn to kowtow. So you better start practicing your “yes sir boss” unless we muster up the courage and join forces to defeat “the man”. We must organize and generate power. We must be innovative. We must redefine the marketplace. We must create competition. This is the only way we can save our way of life for ourselves and our descendants.
