"Well you sent some our way anyhow. Hey we got some hail too but it was mothball sized before it came to us and only lasted a minute or so. Didn't even bruise the cows. I'm sorry about your alfafa thats rough. Is there nothing you can do?…"

Hi I just read your response to the country boy thread. I hope you don't mind but I decided to write to you here on your page. First of all, welcome, as a former Santa Monica boy, I am glad I am not the only one crazy enough to live here from there. Secondly I liked your post and what you said was all true. I live on my own farm 50 South of Eau Claire and three miles from town, but since I live in bluff country I see nothing but the river and my neighbors across The Beef. So I completely understand the sense of nothing, but it truly is everything, everything that matters at least IMHO. Well take care and stay warm, it's about to get bitter. While not a neighbor, if you ever need anything, just hollar. We are all here to help each other.
Was good to hear from you. Actually, I'm kind of a farmer wannabe. Grew up on a medium sized grain & livestock farm in southeastern Iowa. My older sister & brother-in-law took over that farm when my folks retired. My biggest problem is finding a good opportunity. I'd like to become a large corn-bean row crop farmer, but can't compete with the established farmers in the market place. My banker & I figure up what I can afford to pay for crop land as a beginning farmer, & it's always less than the winning bid at auction - usually a large older established farmer that buys it. I would love to hook up with a large farmer that would like to sponsor/mentor a beginning farmer, but have had no luck so far. How's things on your end?
