Re: Bear hibernate

I carry crop insurance but still have an incentive to "Get-R-Done". Crop insurance pays the bills around here, but it won't put any money in the bank.

Re: Bear hibernate

Yes, even a 5 acre pond in a productive 80 makes it almost impossible to acheive a respectable yield average for the 80. Worse yet you have to look at that darn hole all season long. It not only is not producing but it costs you to own it and you lose whatever imputs you put into it.

 

So instead of pride in the 75 acres that are producing, we become focused on the darn 5 acres that is not.

Re: Bear hibernate

It would have been nice if it were just a 5 acre pond. Really got lucky the beans did as well as they did.  Glad we didn't give up on it.

Re: Bear hibernate

That's exactly what it is.  It's a quadcopter drone with a GoPro camera strapped to the belly. Our agronomist, Tom Smidt from Greene, has the equipment.
