You might not agree with me and that is fine, but don`t ever get in a memory challenge with me, cause I can clean anyone`s clock on that.

Re: How To Make Money Grain Farming?

Yes K-289, the problem with `vertically intergrated" pork production is the profits leave the small communities.  In the olden days we`d haul hogs to a buying station and go to the cafe afterwards, visit one of the town`s five hardware stores, Mom would buy groceries at one of the 4 small grocery stores.  Main street had department stores that hired high school kids for their first job.

 

I could go on, but I think everyone gets the idea, the small livestock man made the communities vital, schools were full of kids and churches were filled sunday mornings.  That old Iowa was Heaven, we just didn`t know it at the time.
