    I’m trying to find a way to disengage from here and move there. I imagine a thousand head heard of beef which at current prices, would gross about four and a half million US Dollars. Beef is becoming more expensive every day. Weather Iran opens up or not I don’t care. It’s really easy to sell across the border from Artsack into Iran. An investment in 50 calfs, would turn into a thousand, theoretically in about six years. But realistically, one sells the bullocks after two years, so you don’t get a doubling after two years, because of the sales, so the heard increases by 50% every year.
