Premium Lamb Cooperative

Sheep production is mostly found in southern Pennsylvania. The number of sheep and lambs has fluctuated over the years, as well as the main sources of revenue for producers. In the past, sheep were sought for their wool and meat, but the current wool market is weak because it is not used very often. Producers’ main source of revenue now comes from lamb; however, there is still a lack of a market. Pennsylvania has no large lamb slaughter facilities and the only nearest one is located in Michigan, which means producers have to either go to a smaller plant for custom slaughter or spend a large amount of money to transport the lamb to a larger plant. In New Holland, PA there is an auction market for live lambs, but the biggest competitors for lamb are producers in Australia and New Zealand. These producers sell frozen lamb in the United States market at competitive prices. Lamb was never usually a big part of the American diet, but since the country has become so diverse the lamb market has grown because its main consumers are among ethnic populations. Other lamb producers and I are contemplating forming a cooperative to market lambs. We are looking at three different options. We could consider combining our lambs and selling them live through the New Holland auction or a processing plant. Another idea is to buy or rent a slaughter facility to butcher our own lambs and use the co-op to market the meat to ethnic markets. Our last option is to create a co-processing arrangement with an existing slaughter plant and share the costs and profits from both the slaughter and…...

The Lamb and the Tyger

..."The Tyger" and "The Lamb" by William Blake, written in 1794 included both of these poems in his collection Songs of Innocence and Song of Experience, takes readers on a journey of faith. Through a cycle of unanswered questions, William Blake motivates the readers to question God. These two poems are meant to be interpreted in a comparison and contrast. They share two different perspectives, those being innocence and experience. To Blake, innocence is not better than experience. Both states have their good and bad sides. "The Tyger" is basically the negative reciprocal of "The Lamb" because it challenges God. The main question that Blake is asking in the two poems is that how can the same God make such a vicious animal and also make such an innocent animal. God created all creatures great and small, and he could not have created two creatures more different from each other than the lamb and the tiger. The lamb and the tiger are just vehicles for Blake to express what he feels happens to people as they grow, develop and eventually become perverted by the world around them. In the poems "The Lamb" and "The Tyger," William Blake uses symbolism, figurative language, and regiloious questioning to advance or evoke the theme that God can create good and bad creatures. "The Lamb" is from Songs of Innocence. In choosing a lamb for the subject, Blake immediately establishes this poem of innocence as a religious. "The lamb is made by Christ and is an obvious symbol of the mild and......

Adoration of the Lamb

...the Lamb The Adoration of the Lamb is Jan Van Eyck’s greatest accomplishments of a Renaissance painter. It was painted with oils in the third decade of the 15th century (Glover). This painting definitely has a lot going on in it. The painting is consisted of twelve panels where the outside panels can either be closed or open. There are many spiritual aspects in the painting; from the Holy family, Mary, Joseph, and Jesus; to Adam, Eve, and plenty of saints. The representation of these earthly and otherworldly figures shows the aspects of this world and the next. The lower middle piece physically reflects this with the horizon as the divider between the worlds. The saints and other peoples on the ground represent the present and our actual life, the dove in the sky and the rays from the sun represent the heavens and the afterlife (Glover). The lower middle panel is the most intricate piece in this painting. The Lamb, located on top of the altar, carries a large amount of significance which this paper will go into detail. Christ is represented twice in this painting. Christ is shown as the Celebrating Priest in the upper level seated on the throne with his crown (Philip 61). The second representation of Christ is the Lamb of God being sacrificed on the altar. Its position on the hill indicates how the Host is elevated at the consecration. It serves a double purpose in that it shows the importance of the lamb being above everyone else (Philip 62). The sacrifice of the lamb......

The Lamb and the Tyger

...Christine Mogollon July 9, 2014 Enc1102 The Lamb and The Tyger In William Blake’s Songs of Innocence and Experience we are shown a comparison of nature. The innocent ‘lamb’ and the ferocious ‘Tyger’ are designed to be interpreted in comparison with each other. In the poems "The Lamb" and "The Tyger," William Blake uses symbolism, tone, and rhyme to express the theme that God can create good and bad creatures. The poem "The Lamb" was in Blake's "Songs of Innocence," which was published in 1789.While, "The Tyger," was in his "Songs of Experience," which was published in 1794. Blake's lamb and tiger symbolize two opposite views of God: the creator of good and evil. In "The Lamb," Blake uses the symbol of the lamb to paint a picture of innocence. The lamb is a symbol of Jesus Christ. The poem begins with the question, Little Lamb who made Thee?” the speaker, a child, asks the lamb about its origins and who provided him with life, food, clothes, his “tender voice”. Then the Lamb answers his own questions: “He is called by thy name, For He calls Himself a Lamb.” one who resembles in his gentleness both the child and the lamb. A lamb is a very meek and mild creature, which could be why Blake chose to use this animal to describe God's giving side. He even refers to God as being meek and mild in line fifteen: "He is meek, and he is mild." And then goes on and sends his blessings. In this poem, Blake wants to shows all the good things created by god. In ‘The Tyger’......

Here is the list of topics that I will be discussing in this report: 1- SQL Server 2- OFOQ ERP System (Time Management) 3- Project SQL Server From the first day of my coop, my supervisor gave me an SQL database and a Microsoft SQL course CD to practice SQL. It took me a week to refresh and to get back on the right path. Moreover, he also gave me a documentation that has all of the information about the joins between the tables, so I can fully understand how to generate meaningful reports to the management. The next two weeks were about maintaining the database and how to perform a periodical database backup as figure 1 illustrates.

The Coop

...Weiheng Hsu MKTG 500 HBS CASE: THE COOP – MARKET RESEARCH 1. What is the size of the loss at the Coop? What could have been attributed to this loss? (Be thorough in your analysis) The average sales per restaurant is $775,000. The total stores amount is 76. The total retail sales is $775,000 x 76 = $58.9 million. 20 of The Coop’s 76 stores accounted for 32% of the retail sales, the amount is $58.9 million x 32% = $18,848,000. The average decline rate is 6% per store, the amount of the lose is $18,848,000 x 6% = $1,130,880. It is not uncommon that a business organization faces a sales slump, especially when the business organization reaches to the maximum level of its operational ability. In my opinion, the causes of a sales slump can be examined from inner factors and outside factors respectively. In terms of inner factors, according to Buckmeister’s examination, he found that the performance that below the kitchen’s standards may contribute to customer’s dissatisfaction. Inadequate trained staff can cause a bad customer service and low food quality. On the other hand, outside factors, such as competitors threat, is another reason that causes The Coop’s loss. For example, KFC, the dominant brand in chicken QSR, not only serves a quality food for its customer, but also lunches several special promotion events, for examples, valued-added premiums or tie-ins with sport events. 2.

The child asks, “Who made thee” (1). b. Innocents of the boy and lamb. II. The child’s question is of the Lambs origins. a. The question expands open the timeless questions that all human beings have. b. The question of creation. III. The child answers his own question with a riddle, which holds some spiritual truth. a. The riddle is when the boy tells the lamb that someone who calls himself a lamb made him. b. The lamb refers to Jesus Christ. The Lamb by William Blake is a poem like child’s song, in the form of a question and answer. The first stanza of the poem is descriptive which makes it very easy to understand, while the second focuses on abstract spiritual matters and contains explanations and analogies. The poem connects religion with both the human and natural worlds, being associated with the rugged fields and valleys as well as livestock. The Lamb portrays three main themes: childhood (innocents), human nature and spiritual truth. The Lamb begins with a child asking a little lamb a question.

Lamb to Slaughter

...Feminism in “Lamb to the Slaughter” In the socially stagnant post-war United States of the early 1950's, Mary Maloney is content with the routine she has established for herself as a homemaker. She spends each day anticipating the return of her husband, police officer Patrick Maloney. In this waiting period, she tidies up his house, prepares his food, and periodically glances at the clock until he arrives. For Mary Maloney, her husband's return is "always the most blissful time of day" (Dahl 24). Patrick's presence completes Mary, in that she is dependent on him both economically and emotionally. In Roald Dahl's 1951 short story, "Lamb to the Slaughter," Mary Maloney comes to embody a feminist heroine by escaping her husband's oppression. Her behavior in the beginning of the story is docile and therefore socially acceptable; she is the willing and conscientious housewife that all women should be. She has no choice in the matter, for "the Western family structure helps to subordinate women, causing them to be economically dependent" (Bressler 186). As soon as her husband Patrick reveals that he is leaving her, Mary's whole character changes. She murders her husband, who has provided her with the security she has come to take for granted. The cultural, linguistic, and bodily elements that differentiate the female from the male are apparent in "Lamb to the Slaughter," therefore marking it as a highly subversive feminist text. ......

...HBS CASE: THE COOP – MARKET RESEARCH 1. What is the size of the loss at the Coop? What could have been attributed to this loss? (Be thorough in your analysis) I think that the company incurred a loss of 1.3 Million for the year 1995 (attached excel sheet that shows my calculations). The reasons that could have led to this lost were: * Decline in sales – 6% decrease in sales of 20 out of 76 stores * No proper sales strategy * No depth knowledge about the market or the competitors * No proper market segmentation – wide age of customers 18 -45 years male and female * Constant increase in the food, labor and contribution cost * Deteriorating the food quality by expanding the food menu * Change in customers taste with time * Less spending * No employee satisfaction * No. of units sold is the same but the revenue generated is lesser 2. Analyze the dynamics between McMichael and Wallace. Are they looking in the same direction? Why, why not? Anita McMichael and Trevor Wallace both recognize that The Coop needs to grow directionally by investing money in research to address the lack of quality and customer satisfaction issues. But both have a different approach to market research. McMichael believed that the underlying problem was to do with the operations, either customer service or food quality. Whereas, Wallace believed that the problem involved the company’s brand image and marketing activities. Hence, both are thinking and......
