I can’t do the more intensive right now, but I like hearing the other folks talk about their trading. Maybe someday I’ll be able to dabble in that.Land will come back that’s not the issue . Inputs are.
Twenty years ago I could sell two calves and buy six tons of fertilizer, today one calf won’t buy a ton.
It’s still about grass management be it pasture or hay, as inputs climb with the current cow prices leaves few levers to pull.
We buy retail and sell wholesale that only leaves inputs to control. This is about knowing the true cost to maintain a cow per day as well as per year.
Might be more economical to run stockers or heavies from March to October.
There is no one size fit’s all.
Better sharpen your red crayon and buy some more Big Chief tablets lot of goesintos to look at.
But even if I marked all my purchases for the farm to market right now, it seems I’m in the black. Kinda crazy.
Never thought I’d be able to sell my tractor for more than I paid for it, but these past few years have been crazy.
As I said above, wondering if I’m stupid not to just sell everything and wait for the next downturn to get back in…
