Mother Corp knows all.

But you know what? I could give a rats ass what businesses think or politicians etc.

Ralph ****ed up, and Trudeau is no saint.

Deere is the same overpriced crap as all the others.

Its a forum about ag and its not easy being a farmer. We are bottom feeders, and all the parasites do is feed off us. Reply With Quote

Agree , and now that SHTF ... the very people that live off us .... have been silent on the commodity collapse partially caused by our federal government.
All you here is , big crop , big surpluses.... Canola going to $8 ..
Will be an interesting winter at the elevators and machinery dealerships now.
Also they are seriously phoning now to sell fertilizer while 80% of the crop is wet in the field , losing value beyond the 1970’s price of number 1 grades .
Thanks Ag Industry for sticking up for the farmers in Ottawa....... not , one fooking word hardly. Reply With Quote

    Equipment is moving, ok not but were telling people that. Buy buy.

    Fert is on sale; Ok take it now we have payments and need cash flow, please prebuy.

    Seed best and greatest canola available just like your dad grew probably the same stuff with only a liberty component or RR added to it. But we charged you dollars plus and were working on a flat price of a 100 an acre cost. Reply With Quote

    I think this weather is driving everyone to the brink. Been too many years of it for many farmers. They said cheer up things could be worse, so i did, and sure enough things got worse Reply With Quote
