defeat County of Origin labeling (COOL). If I’m wrong that the labeling law
was beneficial to our industry I’d sure like someone to prove it to me. In the
summer of 2015 when the US House of Representatives repealed COOL our markets

problems that need solved like getting more cash cattle to trade on an open and
competitive market. Captive supply has been killing us for years but most
recently when just a small percentage trades on the cash market it leaves some
serious price discovery problems. Friday the cattle on feed report looked
extremely friendly with placements 5% under expectations, hopefully we’ll have
some follow through strength this week. It looks like everyone is finally
putting a big dent in the bean harvest, boy has this been some work!!
Congratulations to all the area teams who qualified for the football playoffs.
