Bryan Walton Alberta Cattle Feeders

There is never a shortage of issues in the cattle business.  Since 2003 we have dealt a rising currency, export bans and struggles with boxed beef demand.  On the bright side the supply equation looks to be bullish and demand for middle meat appears to be recovering.  On the political side there has been some very controversial changes to the beef check off system in Alberta.  I have been very curious about how the whole beef check-off rule changes in Alberta is going to impact the industry in the long run.  One thing is definitely sure, the issues are always there to discuss.

Bryan Walton is the CEO of the Alberta Cattle Feeders based and is based in Calgary, Alberta.  We talked at the International Livestock congress in Calgary three weeks ago.
