Jolley: Five minutes with Scott George, NCBA’s new president

I can think of few things more exciting and, at the same time, more frustrating than being elected to head up the National Cattlemen’s Beef Association. Seems like most of the past presidents I’ve talked with start off their term with unbounded enthusiasm. FULL STORY »

Jolley: 5 minutes with Clay Pope and the magic of YouTube

I didn’t see Clay Pope’s heart-to-heart with President Obama when it was first posted on YouTube. I discovered the now famous video when I read Timothy Egan’s New York Times Opinionator Blog last week. The title, “Hix Nix Climate Fix,” offended me but it was a clever re-use of one of the most famous headlines in newspaper history. FULL STORY »

Jolley: Five minutes with sequestering the meat industry

Sequestration is an ugly specter that has been haunting us for months like a hoard of brain dead zombies. No matter what is said about the dangers of sequestration or the noble but empty pronouncements by our elected officials, it just won’t die.

Jolley: Five minutes with Wayne Pacelle and HumaneWatch

There are two organizations that never back down from a fight: The Humane Society of the United States and HumaneWatch. Of course the entire reason for the existence of that second group is to keep an eye on the first group. FULL STORY »

It’s an annual event – a year-end discussion with Steve Kay about the state of the industry. Steve has been editor and publisher of Cattle Buyers Weekly for a quarter century. FULL STORY »

Jolley: Defending modern agriculture

A few days ago I was watching an interesting commercial on TV. An old farmer standing out in a field somewhere in the Midwest was reminiscing about the joys of life in rural America. In the background, a large combine was slowly doing its work. FULL STORY »

Jolley: Talking calmly about antibiotics

I suppose the current ranting and raving and choosing of sides goes along with the modern political climate. The art of calmly discussing the merits and demerits of an issue based on hard facts and science has dried up like a field of corn in the middle of Kansas this summer. Let’s try to revive that art.

Cattle Outlook: Producers delay sending cattle to market

Last week was another week with little or no improvement in pasture conditions. Some producers are nearing a breaking point when it comes to being forced to send cows to market due to a lack of feed, while others are continuing to hold out hope for some fall pasture growth to prevent a large liquidation.
