True, about doing as many things as possible on the farm yourself.......but, you run out of time before you run out of places of “ I could do that myself”
It’s my own doing but even after all these years for me it just feels like I’m on the job 24/7/365. Always thinking “I should take care of that, add that to my list to get done”
There is no time clock to punch out and go home
This needs repeated. I need it burned into my brain. Cash flows look great when you do all the work yourself but you can’t do all the work yourself
So true , especially for livestock guys , like Mikado says its a 24/7/365 as even when you wake up in the night you think "i gotta do this,this,ect."
I am the 'old guy'here now but still worry....We did a de-pop-re-pop 3 yrs. ago and it was like heaven not worrying about power failure, feed, breakdown,ect...Honestly, few cash croppers realize it but they have the best job in the world
