Lots of pressure and disappointment in farming.Always has been.A few years ago, we had a bad drought situation. I was stressing on that then I remembered my grandaddy made it through the 1930's with much less resources than I had and things didn't seem so bad.When I see my chlidren and especially my grandchildren I realize there are a lot more important things than money and possesions.I have had a lot of struggles in this life but God has my back so whatever happens is nothing to be compared to the future.
Don't know but I'll bet those folks never realized haow many people were saddened and affected by their actions.One more thought,don't wait till someone is dead to tell others( and especially them) what they mean to you.
I was talking to a dairy farmer this morning. He was telling me he hear of another California dairyman who committed suicide. The dairy business is terrible right now but never suicide. The guy I was talking to was milking 4,500 in 2003 and he went broke. He is now back to milking 1,000. If you go broke you just get up and dust yourself off and get back into the game. Learn from the mistakes that cost you last time.
