Don't worry, for a worker, there's always a different job out there. The problem arises when a prospective employer wants to see an applicant's previous job history and there is none, because they've only just recently decided they need a job. That never looks good. But, with a work history and your mechanical skills, you'll be able to find something.

SV, got laid off about 35 years ago. Never looked back. Always looked ahead and found other work I could do. Like you I was a jack of all trades and master of none. Have worked for my self since then. You will survive and make do. May have to suck up the belt a notch or two. You get bucked off and you get right back on. Good luck with what ever you find. E-mail for my number as I have a friend in Idaho that might could help out.

The offer still stands. I can get you a job "cowboying" in northern Nebraska. Might have to dig out another layer though. I look at things like this as a good thing. I know I am. Good luck to you!!

10 more days then its off to a new adventure here too. Ranch is for sale, and I am not going to ride this one to the ground. Going back to running a floater and driving a truck again. I'm excited, but going to miss the cows eventually.

Oh, the pics you have put up of late were your former employers stuff.

That fits a little better.

Bummer to get laid off, hope you catch on soon somewhere else. Might be slow for a couple months, but by March you might have to block your phone from all the offers! Sounds like you have some skill and should do all right.

Getting lean down on the farm, the economy turned a few years ago, some of the real big outfits have gone under, the smaller ones are tightening belts again. Really no upturns on the horizon.

I hope my dairy neighbor does ok, they just took on a ton of debt, nice small by today's standards family operation, good people. My understanding dairy is looking at lower milk prices, after a drop already. We live by "the worlds biggest butter plant" and several other processors so actually import milk from a ways around, but even so, milk is mighty cheap right now if you have to pay the bills with it.

Most of the pics are my stuff I own a 3020 a 4020 a 7700 combine and bunch of other farm equipment drills swather baler trucks trailers I do a fair amount of custom farming to and I also run a few beef cows and I do some cowboying for one of the biggest ranchers in this valley but the steady paycheck every two weeks from the dairy pays for it all

I?m still trying to think about that cowboy job it?s something I?ve always wanted to do for sure . If also thought about running floaters but that?s a job you don?t just get around here you have to know somebody that knows somebody
