Spent 14 years owning a fleet of fuel trucks/ flatbed/ pickups leased to the local coop. I hauled everything they sold except bulk feed. I sold millions of gallons of different fuels. Spent hundreds of hours in doing lab work. They came to me and said we are going to buy your trucks. I and another guy started a farm tire shop in 1986. When my back got so bad I could no longer do the physical work, I became finance manager for one of the largest independently owned car dealerships in the state. All the while farming row crops and livestock. My back has continued to deteriate so I sold all the row crop equipment last fall, keeping one 100 hp tractor and all the haying equipment. Just keep bees now.
