In my opinion, it's just like everything else in the ag industry. Every set of hands allowed near the product demands to be paid dearly, thus everyone besides the producer makes money. As long as the buyers are setting the prices, we will be at their mercy, and I see no way to change that.If we could get the pet food industry to use up most of the velvet, perhaps a shortage for the human market would change the price structure.
