Supreme Court Rules In Favor of Beef Checkoff

Chuck Zimmerman

I know there’s a big sigh of relief at the Cattlemen’s Beef Board and some disappointment at the Livestock Marketing Association but at least the drama is over for now. Cattlemen's Beef Board Although I don’t have a release yet from the Beef Board directly, the National Cattlemen’s Beef Association has already distributed one.

What In The Wild Blue Yonder In This Week’s ZimmCast

Chuck Zimmerman

ZimmCastAlthough I interview Harry Thibedeau with the National Rural Telecommunications Cooperative (NRTC), we talk about Wild Blue, the satellite internet access company that says it will be available by the end of June. It’s a long-anticipated service launch and Harry says NRTC has put in a bunch of money so I know they’re anxious to get it going. Wild Blue is just one more reason why you’ll be seeing high speed access, even in the country! Just think of all the blog reading those new high speed customers will be doing.

Ag Sec Going To World Pork Expo

Chuck Zimmerman

Ag Sec. Johanns is getting around. I wonder if he’ll try to get in on the Pork BarbQlossal judging when he goes to World Pork Expo? This release from NPPC says he’ll at Expo to discuss strategic investment. How much do you want to bet it’s the barbeque that’s really behind it? I’m sure they can whip us some good food at the White House but it doesn’t get much better than you’ll find it at World Pork Expo!
