Why the mass exodus of young people from farming? Here is another example of one of several problems – well identified – yet apparently laughed off by the current generation of farmers and ranchers left scratching their heads wondering why junior is leaving for good. Sad, very sad.
Farmers and Ranchers seldom spend time WOTB, but now that it is too hot outside to be working in the business (WITB) cutting trees, spraying brush, etc, now it’s time to sit back and listen to David Pratt, owner of Ranch Management Consultants, and the dvd i just received entitled, “The Three Secrets for Increasing Profits” and begin WOTB. (Working On the Business).
Happy 4th of July!!! be safe out there!
