How about a good story for a change? My personal involvement...Submitted by alterego on Tue, 01/08/2013 - 14:33
To my fellow DP readers,
I wanted to share a personal story to let you know small business and american might is still alive in this country.
Today we ran a press release found at the link below announcing the first Awassi sheep born in the United States. Well, for most of you this may be meaningless but the Awassi sheep are highly sought after in the Middle East for meat, wool and milk production. We were told by big US agriculture universities and large dairy operations that we would not be successful importing these new sheep genetics to the United States.
So, take the small dairy farmer, hard earned sweat equity money, the will to not listen to nay sayers and the tenacity to follow through with an American dream to bring these beautiful sheep to the USA. This is exactly what Karras Farm has accomplished and I have to say I'm very proud to have been a part of the dairy sheep history of the United States. As Dr. Paul would say " let the free market decide winners and loosers " Hope and pray that the US free market wants Awassi dairy sheep as much as we do.
Thanks for looking and I wish you all a fantastic 2013.
