NCBA10 – The Economic State of the Cattle Business – Gregg Doud

One of  the great things about attending the NCBA convention is that you get a chance to hear what some of the NCBA analysts an staff have to say about the industry.  I was very fortunate to get a chance to talk with Gregg Doud.

Gregg Doud is the Chief Economist at the National Cattlemans Beef Association (NCBA).  Gregg is a highly respected analyst of the cattle industry and I was fairly fortunate to get a chance to chat with him.  We chatted about the economic outlook for the cattle industry and what impact country of origin labelling is having on the US, Canada and Mexico.  I was especially interested in Gregg’s opinion on COOL and the impact it is having on the US value chain.
