Hi Gene,

Look at them as a Dairy Herd. You want milk to drink, make butter and cheese with and to use to buy other things. If you slaughter the herd, no more milk. However, good herd management dictates that you need a supply of new heifers to replace aging cows that drop in production.

I love the analogy! Although as an aging cow myself, I do get nervous ;-)
