The article highlights the issues that were explored at the Annual Meat Conference in Dallas, Texas in March 2006. The conference serve as an ideal forum for the nation's meat and poultry buyers and sellers to discuss the latest trends and most pressing public policy issues. And though topical, pervasive concerns about bird flu, mad cow disease and related food security issues feature prominently on the list, day-to-day in-store operational issues remain the key focal points for the vast majority of meat industry executives.
