  1. Aw man, if this weren't right after a NAMA competition in Kansas City, I'd be going! Any chance of this happening again in the future?

  2. Just recieved the Livestock Merchandising book and really enjoy the information in it. This will be a great help to some of the old timers I have worked for back home.
