Re: 2011 first year ever that the US has been a net exporter of beef.

I find it really interesting that we find exports back to pre " BSE event" and a world in border line resecssion and record high prices and we have these export volumes---seems if this growth policy would have been implamented the past decade would have saved several operations from extinction ---if we really have"free enterprize" I have never under stood a  ""manditory ""  beef check off ---
