Jolley: A talk with Texas CBB member Dave Edmiston

Dave Edmiston called me while I was sitting next to a cattle trailer in the middle of Iowa. I was wondering why the tractor pulling it was festooned with a cartoon image of a flaming pig, but then I was in the middle of Iowa. FULL STORY »

Jolley: Five Minutes with Dr. Michael Doyle and those Superbugs

You should have read it. The story was in all the newspapers last month. Issued by the Food and Drug Administration, it was called the NARMS (National Antimicrobial Resistance Monitoring System) study and it created panic in the streets. FULL STORY »

Jolley: CBB member Jimmy Maxey knows beef from calf to cutlet

Jimmy Maxey was raised on a family ranch; actually, it was the second homestead. His father, Jim Maxey, Sr., started raising cattle on Bethel Island, a five-square-mile chunk of river island about an hour east of San Francisco. FULL STORY »

Jolley: HSUS hangs Wyoming Premium Farms

Yup, they strung ‘em up from the nearest tree. Left them slowly twisting in the wind. The trial will be held later, but this hanging was done just to save some time. Wyoming Premium Farms was already found guilty in a kangaroo court. Judge Roy Bean presided. FULL STORY »

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.

Jolley: Will sequestration force the sky to fall?

I woke up Saturday morning, fearing the first day of sequestration, remembering that it rhymes with unpleasant things like castration.
