The meat tax has now been carried through. Would you consider it timely just now to do everything possible to develop beef cattle husbandry on the suburban state farms, the industrial state farms (i.e., those attached to industrial workers), in the army, etc., etc.
You once said that the specialists believe it possible to develop rabbit-breeding and pig-breeding (without the use of cereals). Why not have some measures legalised in this sense right away.
Drop me a line.
 The decree on a meat tax in kind was passed by the C.P.C. on June 14, 1921, and published in Izvestia VTsIK No. 133 of June 22, 1921.
