Let people spout off if they want. I work 40+ hours 3 hours from home, so I'm a weekend farmer. My wife and son-in-law help during hay season, otherwise, just me. I have 29 cows and farm 100 row crops, and 60 hay. Other than my tractors, it cost around $2500 to get equipped. I have 2 Gleaner K's and an E. One K is set for corn, but if it goes down, in about 2-3 hours I'm going with one of the others. The aggravation and tinkering are my therapy. Some stress involved, but who doesn't. Do what you want, the rest of us are.

Don't tell my brother that. He started out in 2000 with a teacher's job (wife teaches too) at a public school. Owned 20 acres and started renting a quarter. 17 years later he owns 340 acres and rents about 800 more. Still teaching full time with 4 kids helping with the small chores. Has his own line of machinery and trades labor with his neighbor. His equipment all has good working headlights.


Everything he makes he rolls back into his farm (along with some salary) and keep building his equity. To many guys think because they couldn't do it no one else could either.

Ah yes, just checking in this wonderful Sunday morning. I'm setting here in Southern Kansas living the dream life, not a care in the world. Last moisture we have had of ANY KIND was mid October 1.5" of rain in 20 minutes, had to replant 900 acres of wheat, not a drop since. Yes this is the dream life, crop dying right before my eyes. Life is FUKING GREAT on the farm! Rolling Eyes

Then get out of farming and let someone else take over your
miserable operation.
