That’s partly true. I grew up on a farm. I saw many people decide to be farmers. Some were highly educated, had money.
They bought a farm, nice equipment, worked ground, planted crops. They harvested crop, sold it. Few yrs later I went to the auction where they tried to recoup part of the money they lost.
Dad and others saved $$$$ buying slightly used stuff.
I went to auctions on same farm site @ ever 5 yrs at more then one place.
Anyone can hire fieldwork, planting, spraying, fertilization, harvest.... and lose money every acre.
We made best money when we didn’t shoot for top yield. That extra @$40 a acre spraying cost, @$60 in fertilizer, extra @$40 in seed to get 25 more bushels a acre (if enough rain, sun...). Let’s say increase of 40 bu of corn. At $4 a bu (dang good price) that’s $160 more profit a acre. Cost $140 so you made $20 a acre. IF everything went perfect. It’s more likely you get @25 bu more, sell @$3.50Bu...and lose the farm.
Farming is easy. Making money on it is hard.
I beat you to it... But, okay -- your meme had a snazzier edit!
They’ll change that state motto if the can!
Well, we finally have a President with accomplishments worth celebrating.
