Without ANY other source of money (livestock, custom work, wife, etc)...
Grain farming makes very little sense. If you own land I think you're better off just about anywhere in Midwest renting it out right now
Fertilizer cost cuts from custom raising hogs, plus the income from it, keep me pretty viable. I'm better off with my 750 acres and hogs than 1500 with my same number of hogs. I have some really cheap operating acres that I can bring down the cost of the rest with.
