Catching one of those nails sucks on the knees for ya.
For someone who explained earlier how they sell freezer beef and promote the industry make me question why you have a problem with anything going on. You heard it's a problem so it must be a problem.
I don’t sell all my calves as freezer beef (currently). If all goes well we will have our own packing house in the family within the next two months so that might change, and will alleviate several concerns (packer related) that have made me avoid expanding. I try my hardest to sell cattle in ways to avoid giving my own money away.
I’m not willing to be beholden to the packers or their shenanigans, and that includes picking every cattleman’s pocket for their own gain.
