Mr. Crow, While I am not totally certain of the readership base of this publication, I fully realize that my message needs to be directed to the members of Congress, specifically starting with those from the western United States. The issue of the health and welfare of our aging, ever-increasing horse population is most concerning.

For purebred breeders and commercial cattlemen who sold calves early, it has been a pretty good year. Looking ahead is filled with a lot of uncertainty, but one thing about the food business is that there is always a market. I dont know how many purebred breeders have asked me its been a lothow I thought the bull market was going to be this next year.

The report from the human side of the chute was not very good. We had 32 open heifers that were pastured together and exposed to one bull. The bull had passed the breeding soundness exam. He was at least interested in the heifers at the time of turnout. Once we had the news, the bull was brought in for a recheck.

Hello, I want to notify you that cattle grazing on public land is in jeopardy like never before. In Oregon, the BLM is conducting a public comment period on the John Day Basin Resource Management Plan. Comments are due by Jan. 29, 2009. One of the main issues is that the BLM wants to close public land to OHVs and ATVs.

It was announced last week that the new secretary of Interior will be Sen. Ken Salazar, D-CO. Prior to the announcement, it seemed that he wasnt even a candidate. On the surface, he seems okay for the cattle business, given his background. Salazar, former Colorado attorney general, grew up in the cattle and farming business.

A pen is a terrible thing to lose. Or so it seems for guys who are particular about their writing instruments. Most women I know including me, either have a handful of miscellaneous pens in their purse or none at all. Since I usually carry hoards of pens around, I normally dont notice if ones missing, and loaning one out isnt a big deal.
