Lazarus, that is what makes it a hard issue for me. There are some very disturbing issues in that audit, but the majority of these cattle ranchers
are honest, hard working people that are just trying to make a living like anyone else. I should know because I was raised on one. It's a tough
issue for farmers and the government. The farmers have been hit so hard in other areas that it really has put the government in a tough spot on how
to handle this issue. However, safety should come first and I do think the government realizes that it will be their heads if this issue isn't
handled with the a lot of care on both ends.
