I was reading some on this about how Cattle is a productive product these days,

here is part of what I was reading that I found interesting
"The markets are not our biggest worry," Peel says. "Prices are going to be good. Producers must focus on producing as much as possible to sell into this market. They can’t afford any death loss when calves are worth $1,000." Do all you can. Glynn Tonsor, Kansas State University Extension economist, agrees—now is the time to capitalize on the market. "We’ve seen improvements in forage production and declining grain prices. That translates into improved cow-calf profitability in 2014."

Unless we open our trade market to Brazils foot and mouth disease infested cattle.....
that kind of stuff makes me quiver. I've read some on how that disease has affected Great Britain and how farmers can lose EVERY animal on their place and then be unable to use their land for livestock...that's just horrible.
