Looking for farm employees

Started this discussion. Last reply by Chris Dunphy May 10, 2012. 20 Replies


I'm the son of a 1st generation farmer and Damn Proud Of It!.... Grossman Farms, Inc.

I'm a 22 year old farm kid from Linton, ND. We raise mainly wheat and sunflower and have a herd of cattle. I have been active on our farm ever since I was old enough to go with my dad in the morning. I'm currently a senior at North Dakota State University, Fargo ND; majoring in Agricultural Economics with a minor in Crop and Weed Science. After college I plan on returning to the farm and taking over what I love and do best!

I respect all farmers of any practices as long as they respect my own ways. I am not afraid of change and willing to listen to others as long as it is progressive and possible. I live in reality so am only interested in what is realistic. I am open to others point of views but if someone feels the need to attack my ways I will defend it to the bitter end. I am always willing to answer any questions that anybody may have and I love asking others about how they do things and try to learn from others.

Marketing Club via Facebook

Hey a group of friends of mine as well as a few professionals in the commodity marketing world have created a “marketing club” on facebook.  I know it takes some attention away from this site; however we felt it was easiest on facebook since it is so easy to access by phone apps, etc.  If anybody is interested in this the group is called NDSU Marketing Club 1.  Feel free to request to join and include that you heard about it on here so the administrator (Dr. Frayne Olsen of NDSU Extension)…See More

Hey Brian sorry I've been SO slow in replying about my goats...right now we still only have 4 and we're not quite sure what we want to do with them. Their 100' x 100' with wooded area and grass didn't last very long and my thoughts were that we would put them in a field we are not using and get some premade fence panels. They like to lean against the fence to scratch themselves and this has sort of warped our fence to where they can sneak out underneath it. They get fed plenty every day, they are just curious little animals. I don't know of anyone around here who would want goat meat or milk...I wish we had bought some cows instead :(

Hello Brain! How are you? Thanks for getting back with me, I thought you got busy with the Harvest and you forgot about me. Let me know whats going on from time to time. I imagine right now your involved with the Harvest mainly and also trying to get ready for the winter. Sometime I'll tell you about my experience with Rice down here in Texas. In the meantime check this out and get back with me when you can. Have a good Harvest, Your Friend Martin

Hi Brian, Thanks for getting back with me. I like your screensaver on your website here. I had about 20-25 hours of Soils Science. I had one 5 hour course in Weed Science (it was excellant), I have one 5 hour course in Forages (it was excellant) and one 5 hour course in Ag. Mechanization (it was excellant as well). I like the Science end of things. But Ag. Econ. fascinated me also, unfortunately I would have liked to have had Statistics for this. I went to The Ohio State University, It is the 2nd largest University in the nation, with the 2nd largest Ag. College. It was quite an experience. I am trying to do Volunteer work with NRCS. Oh yes they do have Rice in Texas, Also in Louisiana and mississippi. We have the world's LARGEST rodeo here in Houston. Drop me a note if you have time. Martin

Hi Brian! Thanks for getting back with me. They grow a lot of Wheat in the Texas Panhandle. I am in another part of the state (SE) and I have been working on other things. I have an undergraduate degree from Ohio State in Soils Science. I have been working on Rice, Weed problems and water problems amongst other things. please keep in touch maybe we can help each other on the internet? Best, MARTIN

2009 North Dakota Flood

Posted on March 24, 2009 at 12:31pm 11 Comments

When many think of North Dakota they think of winter year round, cold, and no major cities. Well many of this seems to be right, this year we had record breaking snow falls with extremely cold temperatures. However, in recent weeks we have been seeing above normal temperatures, above normal precipitation and yes Massive Flooding. I am stranded in Fargo because all roads in my county are closed due to flooding, most of the county is out of power because of the blizzard that is moving through and… Continue
