We wanna buy Montana beef, but the question is- how? We talked about that and more with Lanie White from The Great Alone Cattle Company in Two Dot, Montana. They're hosting an upcoming meat seminar in Billings.
That historic heart-shaped cattle brand that we told you about back on November 5th sold over the weekend for $36,000 in Joliet, Montana. Absarokee auctioneer Rick Young tells us it was an awesome auction.
Check out this cattle brand that is coming up for auction later this month. It is a heart-shaped cattle brand that has been in one family all the way back since it was first registered in 1873. The brand was first registered to O.C. Whitney of Ennis, Montana on February 10, 1873.
Walter Schweitzer is the newly-elected president of the Montana Farmers Union (and yes, he's also the brother of former Democrat Governor Brian Schweitzer). He joined us on Montana Talks- Montana's leading statewide radio talk show- to talk about the cattle markets, and what many believe is market manipulation by the major meat packers.
