I see. I encourage you to definitely look into continuing your education. It will expose you to new ideas, help you think and look at situations from a different perspective. It can't hurt you, it will only help you to produce a better product and do so more efficiently and effectively. The schooling will pay off in the long run, no doubt about it. Consider it friend and keep farming!
yeah we stay busy...we have full time jobs on top of it! Most farmers are good to work with around here. There are the big boys which I'm sure we will have to compete with whenever we are in a position to gain more acres....but i think that is everywhere.
Hate to hear that and sorry that your big family doesn't get along. Here, we're all peaceful and get along great! I wouldn't want it any other way! Pretty much, everyone is involved in the family's ranching operation, and now the farming as we get back into it after a number of years being out. But yes, the big family here is great!
I saw your comments on the army after high school. Have you thought about attending college? major in agriculture? dairy production?
