Thanks to Bill and Cathy for hosting the DEC. 15.meeting. I WOULD LIKE TO
ATTEND AS WELL.I find Monty's idea intriguing!I would like to propose the
topic of retained ownership for discussion.More specifically,the economic
realities in VT.Ihave grappled with the unknown true cost of pasture for
some time now .I see this value as the largest mystery to be solved in
determining what direction a sustainable Vt. beef industry should move.Does
backgrounding make economic sense in VT.,if one owns the cattle?
