HI everyone my name is Andy Akin. I live in south central IN halfway between Indianapolis, IN and Louisville, KY just off of interstate 65. So if any of you northerners come down to the farm show thanks for passin through. I have been farming all my life mostly cattle, grain, and hay. After graudating from the University of Northwestern Ohio with a degree in Agriculture Equipment Technology in 2004 I worked at a CaseIh dealer for one year. After that I have been full time farming along side my dad. We about 700 acres corn/bean rotation 800 acres of grass hay, 150 acres of alfalfa. We also bale about 15,000 bales of straw a year off of surrounding farms, we custom cut and bale about 1500 acres of hay ayear. We also have a 30 angus beef cow/calf herd where we feed out all the calves plus background an additional 175. This year we sold about a dozen for freezer beef which this is catching on very well and looks promising for the future. Currently workin on starting my own trucking company I have one truck currently leased on to a local company. My goal by next year at this time is to have 3 trucks on the road and I don't have to drive except when filling in for a driver. I would like to expand the grain side to about 1500 to 2000 down the road. Also expand the beef cows to about 200 but pasture is limited around here. So if anybody needs any hay, custom hay baling, or freezer beef let me know.
