Neither do I and we are in the TPP as well, we will give you a run for your money.

I was reading the other day that although you have access to these markets like China with reduced tarriffs or what ever that only limited beef is eligible as it has to come through certain accredited processing plants.

This is interesting. I made that statement mostly because True Grit made about the same statement and no one called him on it so rather than dispute it made the same claim. He gets off the hook and I get called on it.. strange....

Canada definitely has good beef, I don't think I said it's the best though. Australia also has good beef, the higher percentage of Angus the better the beef on average.
If we'd of know this we'd of picked our own cotton.

Well, you did say it: "Our beef is the best the world and people are willing and do pay more for US beef."

And that's fine, I don't have a problem with folks feeling that their product is the best. Just for my own curiosity I thought I'd make much the same claim as you to see if anyone got riled. Sometimes I just like to throw stuff at the wall and see what sticks. :) You can learn quite a bit that way sometimes ;)

I'm good with that, learned along time ago "if you can't take it don't dish it out"
