Texas Ag Commissioner On FOX

Sid Miller , Texas  AG  Commissioner  had  an  interesting  interview on FoX  FriEnds  & Entertainment  spot - - -

$8,000,000.oo  milk  down  the  drain,  loss  of  poultry ,  feed mills  idle , etc.  ,  -  -  -

Not  being  prepared  for  a  weather  event  that  just  unfolded ,     &    poor  response to  the  situation  was  his  message  -  -  -

Has   """  JUST   IN  TIME  SHIPPING   """   lost  it's  luster ,  inbound  &  outbound ,  maybe  -  ? 

The  outfit  ''''  GRADDY  Electric   Retailer "'  is  making  headlines  in  other  stories  -  -  -

Re: Texas Ag Commissioner On FOX

Is Graddy another way to spell Enron?

Well a lot of that "just in time" inventory is if you don`t sell it, you`ll smell it.  Farmers had to dump milk during storms back when they milked 20 head and the country`s population was a more comfortable 150 million.  Now the country has a cramped 340 million population and they milk 20,000hd of cows per operation and occasionally have to still dump milk.  my favorite saying "you can`t build a church based on Easter services attendance".

Re: Texas Ag Commissioner On FOX

Milk  probably won't smell at  18 degrees ,  and  being  un- prepared  for  a  Black  Swan  event might get a revisit ,  like  an  extra  tanker  or  3  - ? 

BIG  HAT  -  BIG  WHEELING  has  it's  other-side  eventually  for  20,000  needs   -  maybe ?

Re: Texas Ag Commissioner On FOX

Moving the population into metro's and mismanaging agriculture in the process might fit in here somewhere.

But there is a lot of oddballs out there...... That is my 92 yr old education administrator uncles point.   And the comment is in particular a comment on education and its removal of the basic curriculum from most degrees.  Not to mention what passes as a high school study program these days.

"When the education goes beyond 8 th grade we all study what we like and want.  Our well rounded kids develop an egg shaped amount of knowledge.  Their knowledge gets deep in one area and just enough information to hurt themselves in everything else."............. Not many gardeners out there any more, that was apparent in Seattle.

I'm  sure  those  reported  losses  can  be  absorbed  into  efficient  operating  volumes -  -  -

Re: Texas Ag Commissioner On FOX

That mass of cold air was odd in that for a few days it seemed to break off from its connection to the arctic... not needing continuous arctic flow to hold onto 20below for extended days.... but 0 or below is normal to the Oklahoma panhandle historically for a week or two every winter except the drouthy 2010-2020.  For a few days the Texas coast and the Canadian border were the warmest spots in the high plains......   Plumbing rules change fast 40 miles south of here in Texas.

Another issue that is odd but normal here where temps always change fast.... After 10-12 days of sub zero Saturday we warmed up to the upper 30's and 48 on Sunday..... That is when the water pipes buried 4 ft down froze and stopped flowing in a place or two.  When the surface is warming up.    Very common to get through the very cold(for us) without an issue and fix water lines in shirt sleeves. (that might be an exaggeration.)

Sure.

Couldn’t possibly be a “theory” that failed just as surely as communism.

The same “theory” guides “agriculture”,

But it works just fine if the gubmint will always swoop in to prop it up.
