a long time ago that there are so many more advantages to a paper hog farm than the real thing. I don't have the overhead and expenses, I don't have to feed them or deal with death loss or labor and I don't have to smell them. I can own as many as I want. The one thing I cannot eliminate is the financial risk of loss but I can stop the bleeding whenever I choose. It still comes down to------it's not always as much fun or as profitable as it sounds.
