    Trump signs executive order withdrawing US from TPP trade deal

    My question is, what are your thoughts on this announcement and the effect it will have (if any) on the cattle market? Will we see a rebound in prices? Any impact on COOL? Any other thoughts? I am just an interested and concerned cattleman.

    Ball Clover

    Good deal Slick. Do you mind letting me know what kind of deal your getting at the Co-op? I am going to need another 200lbs. As you know its not cheap. Greenville is within an hours drive and well worth it if the price is right.

    Triclopyr - For Killing Mesquite/Locust Trees

    Cowboy, good point. I didn't spray the folage...Just the stumps (all the way around) approx 1-3 ft from the ground. They sure look dead...if not, it sure put a major "hurt" on them. I did read somewhere you have to wait 3 months before taking it down. You mentioned don't remove to next year...I...
