As a former principal, it is my experience that school systems need to bring in these kinds of professionals to help waste as much money as possible.
Oh, come on "Old Fatguy". Admit that just the mention of goat meat causes saliva to drip down your chins.

we didn't have this when i was in school because we had to walk in 4 feet of snow just to get to school
You think YOU had it bad! WE had to go 20 miles in 8 feet of snow. And we weren't ALLOWED to walk. On odd nuimbered days, we had to hop on our left foot, and on even numbered days we had to hop on our right foot. And if we were found to be on the wrong foot, we had to attend drug counseling before we we coud eat lunch.

Granted, it's expensive. But if you can last for 30 minutes, you get another goat at no charge. And of course the intangible reward of making a goat smile.

I think most of you didn't read the article. It mentioned they would be paying back the loan at $5,000 per year. And the FFA and 4-H have got to step in to teach the young adults about business, win or lose because you sinics are certainly not going to give them half a chance. I suppose your meals come from a cardboard box or tin can.

They can save the money on the goats and just go directly to the part about how to cash in on all the farm subsidies and become successful 'welfare queens' like the rest of the farmers are. Where do you find $28k spare change?
You no doubt find your way to the cupboard and fridge on a regular basis? The farm families in the US are proud hard working individuals and for you to lump them into the welfare ranks with a bunch of lazy, city dwellers is absurd!! How do you make your living? office work no douby 9 - 5 try 24 7 dairy cows, goats, beef cattle, ect don't quit at 5 and cetainly don't take off for the weekend.
