Good morning to all. Out here in my neck of the woods ( 20 miles NW of Maple Creek , Sask.) Land prices currently are about $300-325,000/ 1/4 or around $ 1800-2000 per acre! Does it pay for itself? not in my mathematics , but for the greedy SOB's that farm around me ( hutterites , neighbors that can't ever get enough) it sure seems to. GREED , Greed and more greed. It isn't nice being the smallest farmer in the area, but I do have everything basically paid for , and I am not ashamed to say that my parents helped me a lot! I have paid dearly to be here ,but I have a couple of old Fords to play with when time permits , and a wife and a son who I love dearly and do my absolute best to provide for. I would trade my 70 cows for another section of land to farm though. That is my only real complaint. Tired of being married to a cow herd.
Make every Day count for something!
