Cattle farming a tough game

Re: Cows home to roost in Gordon Head, (News, March 1)

Beautiful Black Anguses on the cover of Saanich News, I’m thrilled.

This situation is a tremendous opportunity for the community of Saanich.

Raised on an Interior cattle ranch, I encourage those enraged in this situation to listen to the contented ruminations of those 23 future feasts and view permaculture in living colour.

I wish Mr. Alberg all the best, after 15 years in the cattle business, my family resistantly opted out of the gambles of commercial commodity production.

Profits here are not guaranteed and we opted for property development.

Perhaps this “bully tactic” could be resolved with the mediation of a “steer”-ing committee? It seems both sides are not being “herd.” Lets use some cow-mmon sense here.
