Centuries-old "tradition". By their standards, we should still have sails, and and muzzle loading cannons on our war ships. Time to get with the program. The new ones are most likely lighter, less restrictive, and warmer than the "old" coats. Now I wonder, Where do all the old ones go? If they are as good as the wool industry says they are, they should still be in service. If sailors take them home, when leaving the service, that could mean they were, at one time, liked, and useful. That could mean maybe the general public would BUY a few, with the right kind of advertising. Don't be afraid to change. Quit depending on the taxpayer to finance your business. Work a little bit harder like most other businesses.
During the recent Range Beef Cow Symposium in Cheyenne and the Montana Stockgrowers Convention in Billings, the crew at Alltech Hubbard were busy visiting with ranchers about the importance of proper nutrition for their cattle this time of the year; especially those mother cows. And introducing cattlemen and cattlewomen to their new Blueprint Beef Nutrition Program.
