Letter To The Editor

Dear Editor,           
After the "bashing" the cattle industry has taken the last few days from the packing industry and CME, I felt the need to write this. The fire in Kansas will be handled easily by moving cattle around to the other plants. The beef packers were already making lots of money. Now the price has gone down on fats $5-6 and the cutout has put on over $20 cwt. That adds up to another $250 per head and profit for them!
