North Central Kansas, 70 miles south of nebraska and 4 hours north of oklahoma. Not very flat here, It is mostly cattle in the area, most of our fields are 40 to 60 acres sitting among pasture land, have to drive through pasture to get to it, Go thirty miles south and it gets better, an hour west, and an hour east. My dad always commented on why the **** great grand dad stopped here......

I think that has more to do with how our English based search engines work on the web than any banning the moderators do. There are major population areas of the world (Asia, Africa, South America) that are seldom represented on any of the many forums I troll. I live near a siding in south central Manitoba Canada named Deerwood (population 0). I'm still thinking about the penguin farming in the Antarctic. Gerry Ritz used to raise ostrich, maybe we could send him there??

I'm from Denmark. We are dairy farmers in a pig-intensive area.
All small fields, our average is around 5 ha/field. for a flat land like this, we sure have a lot of hills. Highest point in Denmark is about 170 meters above water.

Interested in how others farm, and no forums around here with many users, so i look at a few foreign instead.

According to google map this is our GPS coordinates.
55.355279 N, 9.986981 E

We are from Southern mn. A but 75 miles north of the Iowa border and 145 miles east of south dakota. 45 years ago when I came back from nam the average farm was 160 acres everybody had 15 to 20 milk cows 20 or 30 sows far rowing twice a year. And the women all had a couple hundred laying hens. Then the 1980's came. Now I suppose the [email protected] is getting closer to 1000 acres. There are 3 dairies within 20 moles that have 3000 milk cows each. Their is an egg producer that has 3 million laying hens. You are never out of site of a hog barn that has a least 1500 pigs. When I quit I had 2200 acres and 13 different lanlords. One of whom I had never met. I had no sons so I turned it over to my nephew. And now do custom work for him. This are is "was" not tillable until it was drained. Black heavy loam. In a nice or average year my cat 75 c will pull a 10 bottom plow. When the fall is wet 7 can be too much. The ground just turns to grease.

Gods country but the pollies are having their best crack to f&$k it all up.
I'm from The Mallee SA/VIC border Australia just into Victoria! fairly low rainfall but great spot to farm! :) 250- 300mm rainfall (10-12 inch) but as low as 8 only grow winter crops here not enough rain during summer to grow anything other than weeds. Mainly cereals grown here Wheat and Barley a lot of canola and lupins plenty of field peas and vetch as well. Some faba beans but very hit and miss few growing lentils and chickpeas.
