Nothing meaningful in nearly 3 weeks now
Lots of showers but dust still on any backroads
Crops ok but need refill shortly Reply With Quote

    Deciding where to shave expenses is a shitty deal based on limited resources.

    I wonder if a time will come when tenants will have more influence in the cost of land rent. Still seems like there's only two options...."pay" it or leave it
    If farming didn't "pay" the rent would come down. Simple economics.

    Farming is what you do to keep busy till land value goes up. Rent lots of high priced land if you want to be "busier". Also simple economics. Reply With Quote

    I know a landlord(cousin-in-law) who "picked" his tenant based on their farming practices and not chasing the high dollar rent.

    How many landlords have a revolving door or tenants, three years and let it go. Not saying that is the case all the time and everywhere. Like furrowtickler said, there's always someone waiting in line to assume the risk. Reply With Quote

    And certainly rent won't come down till there are no more. Hard to believe that will ever happen. Reply With Quote
