When firing up your Barbeque this weekend how much is that stake or burger -- -- into a good -- live cattle futures.
Why else are prices sky lit up 19% a year in -- up 33% -- ten years up 48.
Percent unbelievable government regulations placed on ranchers and farmers -- them.
To reduce heard saying guess what that happens when that happens -- they charge you more.
Joining us -- -- cattle ranchers Colorado.
Bureau president Don sharp drop so thanks for joining us first we'll tell us a little bit about the regulations that you have some of that -- of -- ones getting examples of things they make you do is a rancher.
But sometimes we do have quirky things really what happens is that the biggest quirky thing that we have.
Happens from time to time when we get a new regulator and the forest service of the BLM -- have a new idea that they want to basically experiment with even -- the farmer and rancher who's been there for.
You know even half a century he understands exactly -- needs to be -- -- it's a little bit like.
Senate say a salesman he gets a -- supervisor and they say -- we're gonna sell the iPod the old version.
Or sell the iPad not the new one and your income movie based on how well you're able to sell the old one.
That's kind of strange example perhaps in -- the biggest regulation from the we have.
Is -- and buyer radical environmentalist groups can file suit against the BL and or the for service and stop them from doing the things that they understand that they have to do.
They're very classic example of that is the -- that was filed by the Colorado wild.
Horse and -- coalition.
Against that it -- division.
Department and Terry I'm sorry.
And which they were concerned about the west Douglas course heard in western Colorado.
This was heard that the divisional while I have tried to division the department of interior had studied understood exactly what was going on the fact that it was a degradation of that resource.
And that they wanted to eliminate that heard.
Well this group came in and sued -- and says you're not gonna do that.
Cause -- tremendous setback definitely are resource issue and those ranchers and farmers who are using that property for their own benefit.
And it certainly in cooperation with the the -- Bureau of Land Management we're no longer able -- are that them -- we -- -- regulation no I think it's nice things about dated now they fix it but there was a time we had a picking your cattle a certain color.
Yes that's exactly right -- there was a concern that they wanna know what cattle around the range in the fact that they were.
Legally there so they came on the grounds as we reloading the cattle onto the truck and he said -- they wanted to.
-- -- stripe of their forest Green paint on each one of those cows.
In fact what happened -- was there was significantly more.
Paint on the fence up and I want on the -- affects them like said that isn't there regulation that a certain height for your fences.
Now cattle of don't have grown bigger over the years are you gonna have to pony up so to speak in and raised enhances your cost.
As a matter of fact Eric -- doing a lot more pony up in -- control where the cattle are and that's largely largely because of several factors.
Number one is the fact that the Forest Service fences have to be a certain -- That -- has remained the same since the 1950s.
As your prime well aware of the cattle that we -- -- are definitely higher.
And so really it's basically training them to jump the fence the other issue is the fact that the wildlife that are out there and the force of service in the BL and we deal with every day.
They are not respectful of that fence and so that causes -- real problems as a result we end up spending more time writing.
In -- find those cattle get him back in the passions they belong and all right from armored time is money is -- they get it done a shot across the joining us -- they Q.
