I am curious as to how many of us farm for a living...I mean as in this is how you earn your income and nothing else? (Is this still possible in this crazy world).

Just trying to get to know you folks better...

I dairy farmed untill 6 years ago, now retired [71] and son and his wife got the farm, and they leave me live my last years here on the farm. I still help some, in charge of the waste mangement part and also take time to travel where my little Mrs's and I decide to go. The prices are not the best but we sort of make up with high production per animal. I guess we do get more from the milk than I get from the Nasdaq.

Yes, It is not easy but still possible to farm for a living. We do farm full time. It is our only source of income. It continues to be harder to make money but it is the way of life we have chosen. Livestock and grain prices are not good now, if that is what your selling. Fuel, equipment, supplies, etc. continue to increase and just makes thinks harder.

It takes a lot of different things to make a living working at home. I realy don't think I could do it just farming. But you can work at home and make a living just be flexable. I guess you could call it farming your self out to make a living. Mark H.

I would be surprised if there are any...In our neck of the woods there is no such thing anymore. Especially with wheat at $2 bucks a bushel..and fuel at $3.00 a gallon
