AUM lease calf crop share – U tell us!
A. The NGI is proposed as an economically sustainable strategy for land owners
B. Bison have a strong and steady commercial value that allows the same income producing potential, in AUM lease arrangements, as cattle.
C. Negotiations with NGI candidates considered will be unique and result in agreements being tailored to individual land-owners and their operation.
D. Some NGI participants may prefer to be a partner by sharing in the production of the herd and either retaining them, marketing them with us, or separately in a market of their choice.
E. Have another idea? U tell us!
F. The quantifiable value of using American bison in native restoration models is real. The NGI premise is: identifying those real values as [windfall benefits] of sustainable NGI participation.
