Dear Editor, Ecclesiastes says that there is nothing new under the sun. “Surenuff,” we’re still having coal and cow problems 43 years later. Montana’s economy is going to take a terrible hit this year. The Colstrip Generating Station has been closed by Governor Bullock, and the calf income has dropped from $2.50 or so a pound down to $1.30 or so. Using the “Montana Agricultural Statistics” – State Series 1867-1991, there are 1,466,000 beef cows that have calved in Montana (1991).
