just don't raise cows. Americans are stupid and take our cattleman for granted. Buy it all from South America and Australia, then whine cuz their jobs are gettin outsourced.

I work with farmers all day long, almost everyday of the year(Agronomist). I relief milk for two dairies and help plant and harvest for another farmer. For the most part I farm, I just don't own one of my own. Someday soon though. I do have a 560diesel as well a 1456 turbo.

Why farm half when you can FARMALL!

Give fools their gold, and knaves their power;
Let fortune's bubbles rise and fall;
Who sows a field, or trains a flower,
Or plants a tree, is more than all.- Whittier.

When you subsidize poverty and failure, you get more of both
