Texas Cattle Feeders Meeting Underway at Texan Gaylord Resort

Mon, 03 Nov 2008 9:35:11 CST

Texas Cattle Feeders Meeting Underway at Texan Gaylord Resort The 2008 Texas Cattle Feeders Association has kicked off their opening session of their annual convention this morning. Leadoff speaker was 2008 chairman of the TCFA, Walter Lasley. Lasley pointed out that some cattle being fed are losing $200 per head and that current economic conditions in this country will make selling beef a real challenge.

Lasley calls mandatory COOL "ridiculous" and added that it will drive up costs to the cattle industry. He expressed gratitude that NCBA and other livestock groups were able to minimize the harmful impacts of the labeling rule.

Lasley saluted Texas Governor Rick Perry for his efforts in petitioning EPA for a reduction in the Renewable Fuel Standard. He told cattle producers while Perry was not able to get the RFS rolled back- he was able to educate a lot of Federal lawmakers and the general public about some of the issues of mandating the use of corn for this purpose.

Later this morning- the feedlot operators and others at this meeting will hear from Andy Grosetta, President of the National Cattlemen's Beef Association and a panel of the major beef packers. On Tuesday, they will get a market update from Randy Blach of the Cattlefax organization. (in fact the picture you see here is of Andy Grosetta as he began his address to the convention)
