I like it because my costs are almost fixed. I don’t rent a lot of high cost land, a good chunk are on shares and my landlord wants it that way. I have no large equipment purchases coming up in the next five years and 90 percent of my fertilizer falls out of the butts of my chickens. That leaves fuel and seed. Now that I think about it, I’m converting a large portion of my ground to grass hay and that protects me on the seed portion. I’ll let the guys who can’t push a pencil fight over the rental ground and pick up some more in five years, maybe buy some more ground.
