That was a kind and generous thing for you to do, Jody. The benefactors will greatly enjoy your contribution.

The Sask Stockgrowers have a "Beef Drive" on now where you can donate a cow or cash to be ground into hamburger for the Food banks. Two smaller packers, one in Swift Current and one in Weyburn are doing the processing at a discount.

That would be better than anything they would get out of a store. Wonderful of you to do that, Jody.

We do some of that when something comes up stifled or crippled. The value at the sale barn is minimal but the feeling of finding a good alternative to help someone is pretty high. I like "Selling High" over selling low any day.

That's great! Direct charity is about only kind I trust, anymore. And if you can figure out how to help somebody---who really needs it---and stay incognito---!
