Animals, Not People, Cash Cows In Stanchions

There are a few consulting firms on the net that seem to function like matchmaking services to link farmers and investors. I saw several that operate in your neck of the woods. One I cited above catalogs some of the benefits for farmers:

"*Leasing permits the dairyman to have all the privileges of ownership without a large capital investment. He can benefit immediately from the production of the cows he selects.

*The dairyman can expand now to increase his income without waiting three or four years.

*Cash requirements often limit the amount a dairyman can pay per cow. With leasing, the quality of the cows determines the lease price. Leasing allows the dairyman to milk high quality cows.

*The dairy farmer does not need the usual large down payment required for conventional financing...

*The lease payments may be a direct deduction from farm income.

*The farmer can increase his income with very little additional labor if he has feed and space available for additional cows.

*Cows can be acquired when the price is right. The farmer need not wait until funds are available.

*Leasing dairy cows provides the dairyman with additional financial leverage to maximize the size and profit of his farm.

*The dairyman can gain control of more assets through leasing without jeopardizing his line of credit."

I'm sure as a farmer you would recognize that the economies of scale, and thus higher profitability of the last 10-20% of the cows you put on line, would enable you to pay an investor an attractive return in order to jump to full capacity without waiting until you scratch up the capital. Likewise, I imagine many liberty revolutionaries would see the benefits beyond just the 15-40% returns possible (and steady income stream) while owning something real that compounds.

The goal in this phase of the revolution should be finding ways to facilitate putting entrepreneurial people together for hand to hand transactions beyond the reach of the centralized control matrix.
