Re: This Week In Agribusiness

Back in the day we fed out a lot of lambs, took them to Wilsons in Albert Lea and the office where we picked up the check there was a dusty "Eat Lamb!" poster with the tape loose on one corner (no one ever fixed that poster probably burned down with the plant 25 yrs ago) .   There was a lamb promotion check off taken out of the check, the only promotion I ever saw was that poster, no commercial on the 1987 Super Bowl, no ads in the Mason City Globe Gazette or Des Moines Register, no nuthin`.  I think the money went to "administrative fees" and buying posters every 20 years.
