Well said in as few words as possible. How he held his composure was beyond me. My main concern presently is how to bring the young people on to the farm and be able to pay for the farm and make a decent living with the product being produced.

Comment pouvons-nous rendre l'autre partie prête à exprimer ses pensées? La solution à ce problème consiste à poser les questions profondes de l'autre et à être précis et subtil. replique montre C'est parce que les gens ont le désir d'exprimer leurs pensées. Si vous posez des questions plus détaillées, spécifiquement, alors l'autre partie pensera que vous êtes sincère, et il sera disposé à partager vos pensées avec vous.

i inherited the family ranch but with feed and fertilizer so high, equipment repair always high and cattle prices low-i have lost money every year and the writing is on the wall for me as well- good luck to those who can afford to ranch

The FSA has a program in some area's where you can graze CRP. That might help. We stopped creeping calves years ago, saved us a bunch of money. We tried it for 3 years again and found even with cheap feed it was costing us 200 dollars a calf and the amount of weight gain was only about 40 lbs more than keeping them on their mothers until the day before the sale. Find out the optimum number of cows for the amount of pasture and consider maybe selling a few excess acres. Also look into a hunting lease. My neighbors rent out some of their land during hunting season and pick up cash that way.
