Cattlemen Optimistic About ‘Progress’ in Washington D.C.

Greater access to markets in Japan, China and Europe should bode well for American beef producers, according to a report posted today by Capital Press of Salem, OR.

A spokesman for NCBA said that “congressional funding to increase roundups and fertility control” will hopefully avoid “producers go[ing] out of business in the areas where these horses are exploding in population.”

The industry is also pushing for labeling laws and standards of identity for beef and its alternatives, in view of growing consumer interest in meat substitutes.

Seaman Roundup to Resume Next Week

BLM said today that helicopters will return to the air on or about January 5, to remove an additional 150 wild horses from the Herd Areas.  Operations will be open to public observation, starting on January 6, according to the news release.

Captured animals will be taken to the off-range corrals in Ridgecrest, CA.

Gather stats and daily reports will be posted to this page.

The roundup was suspended last month because the horses moved to areas with heavy pinyon-juniper cover, typical for higher elevations in Nevada.

Fish Springs Context

The story of the roundup has been going around on socialist media for several weeks and many of the followers are upset, understandably.

But the report by KOLO News didn’t provide any background on the situation.

The local ‘advocacy’ group now crying “Foul!” actually called for the removal of ten bachelor stallions from the area a year ago.

When they’re not photographing the horses, they’re shooting them with contraceptives.

Who benefits from this?  Certainly not the horses.
