Well harvesting my soybeans did not go well at all. Had a two day wait for rainy weather and then got about 20% of the crop in when the rain started up again. Waited better than another day before it was dry enough to resume harvesting. As soon as the harvester started to move the remaining crop of beans turned to dust. Just withered right up as I sat and watched. :confusednew: *thumbsdown* Sure has puts a big wrinkle in expansion plans.

Hogs are fed up and waiting on wheat to come in. All equipment washed, serviced, and ready to rock when wheat is ready for harvest. Hoping to get that knocked out before Seasons releases since that's the only thing I have in the fields at this time (my imaginary winter wheat).

We are still baling cotton on Marwell. Once the market goes our way, we could make a half million pounds from one field. It’s good money. Once we found a hybrid that grows well here in the UK.

The first year has just gone by having taken over the Dairy farm of Greenwich valley - sold excess silage, hay and straw bales and patiently waiting for cattle milk production to begin, grass is cut and until crops grow there is little to do.

We have been spreading slurry with our new Abbey spreader. We are about a mile or so from the main farm, so we are making some trips back and forth, enjoying the scenery. Marwell is a beautiful place.

I've been slowly expanding my Midwest Horizon properties. I sold the starting ones, picked up 9, 12, and 13 then combined 12 & 13. I ran harvest contracts for a while then turned field 9 into a home base when I had the funds. I just bought field 14 last night and am working on getting it set up so I have one giant field to plant. Once the kiddo's done with gifts (only 16 so groggy even at almost noon after a late night at the ex's) and heads up to play games with friends since at 16 they're far too cool to hand with parents, I'll load it up and lime the fields then start some lumber work to clear the trees. I've got just over 1.5 million in cash from selling my most recent canola harvests when there was a high demand at the Horizon Co-op if I remember the name right.

Whee!

Just moved to Lone Oak Farm. Sold off the 8400R and Harvester, bought a new ripper and 7310 and will be putting in corn (chaff) for the cattle I will be buying mid to late summer. Hoping to have a herd of about 100, might need to invest in the new JD forage harvester for the amount of acres I currently own. (only on 6 day seasons atm) I'm torn on whether I should buy beef or dairy cattle to start. Any info you guys could provide would be much appreciated. :smileynew:

Dairy will take almost a year from purchase before you see any return on investment - beef is far less for a high profit
