A Substainable Farm is one that'll be able to keep operating once the Gov't $$$ runs out and they have to make it without the Gov't Goodies.

Gawd! First I had to face the fact that I'm older than old,now I have to live with the stigma of being "sustainable". Will the humiliation never end?

Randy, are you making your living farming? Is that all you do? I would think that would be sustainable as you sustain yourself, right? I thought sustainable ment doing something in such a way that you sustain at it and can keep doing it.

Yes,I make a living farming. The wife doesn't work and I don't do anything else. That's the trick,just farming to make a living. Farmers get in to trouble when they go from trying to make a living to trying to make money.
I honestly don't know what anybody means when they talk about "sustainable farming". Sustaining yourself? Sustaining the land? Got me hanging as to what these nut cases are talking about.

I think you answerd that, you sustain yourself by farming,?? Or you eat enought food to sustain living, or you have enought gas in your truck to sustain it, to get you to the mill for feed, ect, lol , hahaha , I've cut, split enought wood to sustain threw the winter, or we could just say you farm to "get"threw life, and I got enought wood to "get" threw the winter. Lol, keep sustaining, or getting threw.

That doesn't explain McDonalds announcing that by 2016 they will only buy beef from "sustainable sources". What the devil does that mean?

I have no idea, I saw that too,, but I don't eat there. Around here Taylor packing would buy at auction the down and lame Holsteins for McDonald's, beef. I think a law was passed that, if they can't walk on there own
They can't be used for meat.

You do realize our subisides amounted to a whopping 12 dollars an acre the last 4 or 5 years right?

I"m guessing most will survive without that $12 an acre.

It is the input costs that will do us in the next few years.

By the way my wife works off the farm so I must be a sustainable farmer.

$12 per acre after the ethanaol boom. I know some of my neighbor's were getting over 200K per year when prices were lower. And now you guys are getting subsidized insurance. I don't see other industries getting insurance subsidies?

I pay out of my pocket $14 an acre for $600 per acre in coverage for crop insurance.

Or about $20 per a thousand dollars worth of coverage.

My house insurance is $6 per thousand in coverage.

You name me one person who has collected more in crop coverage than they have paid in.

I collected in 2012. First time in my life I have collected. They paid me 25% of what I have paid in for the last 35 years.

The insuance company is collecting that subsidy NOT ME.
