"Feed prices are up sharply, pasture conditions have been terrible and livestock prices have not increased. Many producers are losing money, and some are selling breeding stock. Eventually that will translate into reduced meat production and higher prices, but that does not help producers in the short run." - Columbia Daily Tribune
Selime, Turkey - In Selime, at the exit of Ihlara Valley (in greek, "Κοιλάδα του Χλωρού ή Κοιλάδα του Περιστρέμματος), you can find an impressive monastic complex, high up on a hill, in an "extraterrestrial" landscape. Going up the spectacular path that leads to the monastery, passing through tunnels, caves and rock cut stairways is equally impressive.
