I heard the other day about guys who farm in two different parts of the country-- i.e. they plant their crops on their midwest farm and then go to their farm on the plains and put their crop in there. The same with harvest; they harvest in the one area and then move to the other. Does anybody else know much about this and how well it works?
I have a neighbor that has farms all over western IA and Arkansas. I'm not sure if he's still doing that. I know the equipment he leased it all from a dealer down in arkansas and the help rode down in the trucks. It was something like 10 guys 4 or 5 trucks. As far as it paying out I can't see it.
there is one farmer that lives in central pa and has a farm in pa where he is from and a farm here in western ny. he keeps all of his livestock on his farm in pa and does feed hay and mulch hay here on his farm in ny. i know he keeps some equipment here in ny but most of it he hauls back and forth on his tractor trailers.
i know a guy who farmed here in central wisconsin and was also farming down in the mississippi river delta. He only did if a few years though. i think he lost alot of money doing it. the land down there can produce some awesome yields but getting it harvested seemed impossible for him due to rain and things
