Farming has to be one of the toughest jobs out there! (i know there are others but this is my opinion) Everyday is a mystery, will the sun shine? will the grain prices be sell-able, can we pay the bills this month? will we seed another year? and so on...
Lots of these questions apply to everyday jobs but we fell like we are gamblin' all the time.
Our R.M is always under scrutiny due to water issues and with the entire month of June we had rainfall which made for our water tables to be high! "We are ditchers!" and not everybody agrees with that, we feel that its beneficial to us and should be to all! With the media and high paying companies we are beat unfortunately. I wont name names but im sure you know who... they pay people to write articles, buy up land and will do anything to make it hard for you to make a living!
Whats going to happen to the family farm? Will there even be a family farm down the line?... we need ag more than ever and to come together more than ever!
I know this rant has lots of holes in it but i dont want to write forever!
do you support these companies? Are you a "ditcher"? what works for you farm?
