I so agree with all of you on this. Unfortunately I don't like or use facebook so can't follow this.
However, I'm about the same place. I have sold animals but each year it is harder and for less money.
I've been pushing the "use your fiber" agenda for 7 years. We can support our farm of 16 via fiber sales,
but you have to work it. I show in spin off's and have really sworn off the halter ring. I see favoritism,
non conformity within the judging and a lot of selfish attitude. My pacas agree with me too. smile
