Re: Bankers Feel Your China Trade Pain

At least most of my stuff isn't really declining in value anymore.  All but the newer couple of things that are only 20 or so years old, that were bigger ticket items.

“Every day has a new lesson.”
One thing the last 5 years have taught— this newer equipment (for a variety of reasons).really is the best we have seen. Measured in bushels and acres handled.
We are running them far longer and testing them — like it or not. All of us.
And I see a few younger guys proficient at repair and maintenance.

Re: Bankers Feel Your China Trade Pain

I watch the scrap iron price, when junk went from $100 to $200/ton my machinery value doubled  Smiley Happy    Of course having to bid against scapers at farm sales makes my replacement costs higher.

Re: Bankers Feel Your China Trade Pain

I realize how close to a bad joke that is ............ but here goes....

 

Does that put a Nebraska education on the "nonessential" list??

 

Or are we finally realizing the limitations of research by computer modeling??

 

Is there any economy left that does not depend on government oversight and ,,, or ,,,,and not least.......

 

When will the contract labor force that is actually doing government work become non essential??  

 

 

Thanks Johnny, Now here is a word from our sponsors
