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 ---
