are you kidding me?! WHY DOES HE OWE THE FEDERAL GOVERNMENT MONEY? CUZ THEY SAY SO?
YOU SIR, ARE RIDICULOUS.
lets see, because he has had his 900 cows grazing our 600,000 sqr acres of federally owned land for 20 years, and that my dear is his bill?
How much is he making from us, the tax payer? Lets find out. He now has 900 cows (all above numbers are fact easily found in the numerous articles)
how much is each cow worth?
nfo on the economics of a cow
From the link above:
4.7 calf crops @ $948/ year = $4455.60
Cull cow sale = $910.00
Total income with 3 percent death loss adjustment = $5204.63
Pasture for 4.7 years @ $216/year = $1015.20
Winter feed for 4.7 years @ $252/year = $1184.40
Yardage for 4.7 years @ $90/year = $423.00
Total expenses = $2622.60
Net income over life of cow = $2582.03
900 cows * Net Income over life of cow = $2,323,827
That is over 2 million dollars in cows he has on OUR federal land, meaning his costs are far less because we the tax payer are subsidizing his costs
for feeding the cow over it's lifetime. You do realize this is Federal land don't you? As in, not his, ours? His family has rented it for
generations, legally, but 20 years ago he got greedy and stopped paying. He owes a bill that now totals over $1,000,000 while he has been making a
lot of money. The numbers above are for lifetimes of cows, average lifetime of a cow fro3m link above is 5.7 years, generously that's 3 cow
$2,323,827 per cow lifetime (generous profit not taking into account FREE LAND, our land) * 3 cow lifetimes = $6,971,481
Even with that low number, subtract the $1,000,000 he should OWE as part of his opperating expense, and he's still up almost $6 million dollars.
Yeah, great little person millionaire you got there... not counting the actual land and property he owns that these cows are not grazing on.
But you go on defending this greedy a-hole who doesn't want to pay up the money he owes the government, corporate welfare fraud at it's finest. I
just laugh that he has people, who I'd imagine are genuinely great people, defending his greedy nature and actions.
