thank's for sharing Ray!

Why does this not surprise me? If people were not so greedy constantly and would rather than today's conventional farming again practicing sustainable and animal-friendly agriculture , there would be no such thing. High-breeded animal breeds are faster sick. Old breeds are more resistant and provide mostly of better quality products.
