Glad you have survived. The real sad thing is that it would be next to impossible for a 21 year old to start milking today. Really any type of full time farming. It is going to interesting to see how it goes in the next 32 years.
There is a lot to be said for being your own boss. I do not know how much longer many will be able to be that in farming. It is turning into one guy being the owner and the rest just hired hands.
