Maybe they carved some cash off the $4B the dairy farmers got. Reply With Quote

It's always to find new markets....what the fuck does our checkoff money go to?

The flax council said the same thing....

The pulse industry is still saying new markets...

Canola council used the same strategy. ...

The lazy fuckers are not doing their job....and get rewarded for not doing it. ...

And then the fucking guys will say to big mouth bucket to get involved....fuck off ....I am not cleaning up your shit caused by your incompetence....

    Markets are basically a finite resource the only way they increase is more population or more consumption but never anything new thats my 2 cents worth Reply With Quote

Do you think the Cargills and JBSs of the world don't know where the markets are? Not only do they know where they are they are likely already supplying them with product killed in another country because it's more profitable to do so. The day it's more profitable for them to ship Canadian beef into a certain market they will do so without needing either Ritz or Bobo's assistance.
    Its really just a bullshit story to cover for successive Government's largely failed export driven market expansion. That's failure measured by net returns to primary producers not by gross export dollars or profitability of transnational processing corporations.

    Have many many city friends,city cousins etc etc and for what ever reason many of them trying these vegan non beef burgers etc and "oh there not to bad", they have for some reason in there brain box that they "should" be eating them.

    Tis a worry

    edit reading a bit from lamb and beef groups etc the biggest way to improve sales etc actually starts at home even though we have a snall population of 20 mill.

    Often wonder why and how we export so much beef to usa always thought they would hav e plenty
