Re: Re: [sharechat] Recomendation Buy AFFCO?

Talk about cross-species contamination.!!!
Some years ago, whilst living in London for about six months, my wife reported that the chicken tasted decidedly like fish flavoured cardboard.
She has nevern eaten poultry since. Chicken is no longer on our Menu, and given the reports that we are now reading, not at all silly, either !!
Sooner or later a market must emerge for Grass fed meat, and all the quotas in the world wont stop it once the people demand quality..
Once the people hit the streets, even the most draconian regime will crumble - Prague, Belgrade, E Berlin - eventually Peking ?
Cheers..

Paul,
 
I am an AFFCO  shareholder.
Not that much to report but they said that a dividend would depend on a quick end to the vet strike and they would let us know on 27 Febr.
 
Suggest you wait for that announcement.
 
Their web site : < www.affco.co.nz > does not yet refer to the meeting, however at the bottom of the page are some news items shown on a revolving bar. Click quickly on any item which appears and there you are!
 
The latest news is that Sweden is now checking if they have a BSE problem.
 
Unfortunately, there are  European import restrictions on beef; presumably others from the EEC are still supplying a reduced market.
 
 As one supplying country after another ' falls over ', there could be a case made- sooner or later- to free up the imports of beef traded by AFF!
 
Further scares re chickens have resulted in a heavy demand for fish and I believe that the market for certified lamb from outside  Europe is growing brighter by the day!  
 
Have you been in Europe and what did you learn?
 
Gerry
