Starting from scratch
Re: Starting from scratch
If it was me, I`d get a job taking care of sites, working for farmers that just made the investment for the manure. It seems the easy money has been made on the investment side, then there`s public opinion against them, so laws could change. Maybe do that a few years and learn the in`s and outs, if you like it and the right opportunity comes up then jump in. Once you sign the dotted line and they start doing dirt work, it`s a long term commitment ...for better or worse, sickness and health. They scare you about loading hogs at 3 in the morning, that`s nothing you`re young, but it`s all the debt a person has to take on.
When you are ready to make the plunge, do your homework on the contractors that build the buildings. Some of them aren`t very old and the ceilings are rusty and the concrete in the pit is flaking. The tin can be replaced, but the concrete in the pits is the spendy part.
