Re: farming sucks
Same here Mr. Bear. It looked dry last week and I had ambition to put out some fertilizer but the pasture was so soft that the quad left impressions so no way I was going to drag around a fertilizer buggy. Rained 1 1/2" Tuesday. Calf market is okay, cows are cheap but have come up from mid winter. Hay is in short supply.
Packer cow market has moved up enough that is making sense to swap the golden oldies for some new blood. Of course you have to add some cash but only a couple hundred. I swapped two old open cows plus $400 last week for two young'uns bred four months.
Still not getting rich but enjoying the good life.
