If the majority of the equipment is yours, take it with you and go, if that means your father can’t farm anymore then so be it. if your families actions are what caused you to leave, then their actions, not yours are also what ended their farming career. Hopefully you land on your feet and get up and going again even if it’s not agriculture, I don’t think I’ve met many farmers who can’t make it doing anything else.It's not the money, never was. I have been putting 40-60k of my income into the farm every year for the last 7 years amid the farming downturn to keep it going....
It's about the disrespect. I own 70% of the equipment used on the farm.
I am not able to just walk away..
I am tired, a farm is a great place for A family, but with my fathers current actions, which I used to ignore, a family of my own is not possible there.
I took it upon myself, and bought groceries for 4 years for myself Nd mt parents... all for not.
If your family is going to do you that way what’s keeping you from throwing it all in the RB auction and moving on?I owe 10k on a drill to the government, but the rest is.
8850jd, have you figured anything out?I think its do or die now for me.
Looking for a farm that needs help, farming operations and also has off season over the road operations. Large or moderate scale.
My experience is extensive in older agricultural equipment and commercial
Honestly, I farm with my parents and drive over the road in the off season, and working for free is too expensive for them.
(Expensive, meaning my father is a narcissist)
The cons... I am personally a wreck. Years of emotional abuse may take me a few months to actually enjoy myself.
Over the past 15 years I have been purchasing farm equipment on my own to benefit my farm, and it was all for nothing. Either I can sell the stuff or keep it, (8850 kinze and more)
I own two semis which I drive one over the road currently.
I should have left 7 years ago when he bought a brand new combine and had no idea how to pay for it... the last mental breakdown I had.
To many wasted opportunities due to ego and childish behavior in some of the worst economic times, and I am tired.
This is not a new story in the agricultural world, but unfortunately its mine.
Hey can you give me a call sir @ 229 805 03968850jd, have you figured anything out?
I don’t get on combineforum much so I’m late to this thread but I’m looking for good guys who want a career oriented farm job, not just someplace to park for awhile and for good guys I’m willing to pay like it’s a career.
My username at hotmail.com will get you in contact with me privately.
