5 years work experience off the farm? What? Why? I don’t understand this theory at all and thankful this wasn’t a pre requisite in my family farming operation. Give a kid that opportunity and they may just never comeback and if they don’t sell your farm after you die then their kids surely will. If you got kids who want to farm and are blessed with an operation that can afford to have them farm then by all means get them boys farmin!
Sometimes a outside job for a couple years will make one appreciate the farm even more, and help make better decisions. A job will teach good work ethic and responsibilitys pretty quick.
