  1. OK, so I’m not comfortable with math.

    But, if you had a large pasture/rangeland, and spend $200 of your time walking part or all of the land with the animals as you did with your goats, well. . . that would cost you–$200. If you didn’t do it, and saved $200 (so to speak) and lost one animal to eating unfamiliar food which turned out to be poisonous, it would be more than the $200.

    If I don’t walk the cows through a paddock (mine are tiny) and show them the perimeter, the loss of time for me would be much greater if one of those adventuresome cows test the fence and find a weak spot–and then I use up a lot more time.

    Sometimes what saves time costs money.
