In a way I can understand your sorrows. My Dad had a 250 head stock cow herd built up in the late 60's, 70's, and the start of the 80's. He had 1500 acres of grass, a good portion which was mortgaged, and about 2000 acres of pretty descent farmland. When the interest jumped to 18+ % in the late 70's and early 80's he came close to loosing everything. Now here was a man that loved his livestock. His best chance of survival was to sell all the cattle, grass, and eqt. Trouble was is wasn't enough to come close to getting out of debt. It about killed him to watch his cows leave. Struggled on farming for a few years, then had a chance to drive a semi part time for a major company. (Kinda of a long story). The end result was that he ended up making more money than he ever thought possible, let the farm ground acres drop to about 600, and lived the last few years of his life never realizing it could be so good. Point is, you never know what doors something like this could open for you.
The ironic thing is, my Brother and I farm his ground now, and with prices as they are, we are making good money ourselves. Wierd how things happen. Good luck to you and hope for the best. Bob
