Worse is when you are kind just because you’re kind generally, and they pull it out from you because your combine isn’t new enough or big enough to their liking. I guess flashing dollars, talking big, and arrogance means more than kindness. If you get an offer from a greedy guy, at least have the decency to tell the current guy, and give him a chance to match or counteroffer?

I’ve had both kinds of landlords. The ones who let you do your job, are gracious and return kindness, and the ones who try to do your job for you, and reply to kindness with belligerence.

The only safe land is owned land. That’s my tip of the day. Haha. Reply With Quote

    It’s been tried here a few times , free land payments , free machinery , still a complete failure. Most stuff trashed in a year
    Some may have been successful elsewhere not sure as a band level
    A few individual First Nation farmers have done very well at Sweetgrass FN west of here
    Red Pheasant was still is a complete train wreck

    Hauled a couple of dozen cows out to a local reserve the guy ran 200 or so at the time. Said he hated ice fishing and needed something to do in the winter. It was one of those -25 mornings when I got there and he showed me how well his new atv started not plugged in out in the middle of the yard. Just remember that he had acres and acres of round bales and must have been very busy in the summer too. Reply With Quote
