I was thinking of a similar promotion, but rather than reduce the price/lb instead offering $5 or $10 dollar appreciation discount off the final price.

Taste test in a few weeks between Harvey's lambs and the Siremax lambs. It should be interesting, as all the lambs are looking good, but Harvey's lambs surprise me by being 10-20 lbs heavier than I guess just by looking at them.

I suggest your state's extension website as the place to look, they are sometimes referred to as 'enterprise budgets'.
