Many thanks for your efforts in my behalf on this matter and I will try my best to help you as time goes by. Should you want me to meet with you and Hilmar at the ranch I will be happy to do so. I have in mind doing a story on the cattle Hilmar has sold that are on feed at Eagle Lake and in turn made into barbecue for a man in El Campo. These are his personal cattle. We have 47 students for the school of knowledge at Valley Mills, from six states and Mexico, a turn out that is much better than we expected. Looks like this will be a successful venture.
