The country has been administered by Pimps for 30 years. Trump don't need money so he don't have to pimp to make a living.

I agree.

The best thing that could happen for the American Beef industry is Trump period, and the worst is Clinton.

Canada and Mexico had a right to be upset. We (U.S.) have bought stocker and feeder cattle from them for over 100 years. With COOL those cattle could not co-mingle with U.S. born cattle. Keeping those separate was not worth the trouble. Meat packers also had to add to the retail lable where the calf was born, raised and processed. It was an intentional nightmare. Mexico and Canada were being docked 20 cents a pound.
The simple solution would have been to use a North America label.
When COOL was repealed it opened the door for the flood of boxed beef imports. Beef can be raised and processed there cheaper than it can be bought and processed here. Sanitation practices are highly questionable.
Out trimmings from fed cattle are now being boxed and exported to countries shipping boxed beef here. The fat is added to the grind for flavor. Some packers chuckle and claim adding the American trimmings makes the beef American.
The U.S. has closed several beef processing operations. We currently do not have the capability to process what we did in recent years.
Beef does not show the profit that pork and chicken do. The raising of the birds and hogs is pretty much controlled by the meat packing industry. Not so with beef.
The only way to control the price paid to farmers is to control weekly slaughter numbers, which they do. Packers cut slaughter numbers and let cattle on the feed lot back up. Simple economics.
We should never allow boxed beef from Brazil to cross our borders. Federal law says we can not import from countries with Foot and Mouth disease. F&M is an airborne disease and decimated our cattle herd back in the day.
