Starting with 175 embryos, the project will be self-supporting by year 5. To do this we would need $256,000 to start with and $312,000 through the 2nd to the 4th year. In the 5th year the project should be self-supporting.
The project must demonstrate that Texas Longhorn cattle can economically support the typical Israeli farm family.
We will give limited help while we work toward our goal of self-sustainability in year 5 of the project. Then we will be able to give full help to all of Israel’s ranches.
The Texas Longhorn cattle project will remain a non-profit institution supporting cattle development and improving cattle management in Israel.
The priority item in the proposed budget is funds to acquire the embryos. That by is self will allow us to start the project.
