5 What does more money in my pocket look like?  In 2007 PA ranked #3 for dollar value of direct sales to consumers by USDA NASS Census of Agriculture.  Farmers share of the consumer dollar has been cut in half since 1950! From 40% to 20% or less!  More money in your pocket looks like a bigger slice of the 80% that processors capture.  It looks like $2/.lb instead of a $1 by simply adding value and doubling our share of the consumer dollar!

9 Major market target audiences:

10 Value added consumer driven opportunities – Show me the money!  Sell beef, bison, pork, chicken, lamb, goat, etc. by the quarter, half, or whole carcass.  Beef at $3 a pound sold to neighbors is double the money in stockyard average and total dollars generated!  Where else can you add value that doubles your money?  Hang and dry ageing beef more than doubles the money from direct marketing your beef. That’s $6 or more than what you might get on a good day at the stockyard!  Market as grass-fed beef to appeal to health conscious
