4 or 5 years ago my middle dependent rode with my to sell some calves, she ask me what we would do if no one bought our calves. The thought does scare me, but I don't think I will ever see that day. I will be in the business, it is all I have ever wanted to do. That being said I want my daughters to marry guys that work 40 hrs a week then go to the lake on the weekends.
This current deal is shaking out some of the part timers around here, I suspect some of the older guys will hang it up as well. The rest of us will fight over those pieces just like we always have. The part timers will be back after the wound heals, life will go on.
