I realize this is stock talk but still relevant. Saw this and was stunned. Lord knows I've had my fair share or sleepless nights/weeks wondering how we would make it but somehow we always do. Don't claim to be a farmer but I turn some dirt on some acres. I don't understand how some are pushed to the breaking point. Didn't realize it was so prevalent. An eye opener for sure.


There's a farmer in our community that does an outstanding job. Almost always has the top yields. He always talks about how tuff times are and how much money he has lost etc. We give him a hard time about him being on suicide watch. Obviously we are just kidding with him. Definitely not a joke anymore.
