Yeah!! I know, and I'll never know enough about farms and business - but some of the crap you read and hear, makes you wonder how they survive... start out on good high payouts for milk and think it's all a box of oranges.. Nothing is all important bar getting the basics all in a row, and maintaining a good healthy herd. Health costs some farms a shitload of money, and they begin to see the expenditure as a fixed cost, never questioning whether it may be the system causing it. You see overseas hunters, $30000 worth of camouflage and kevlar and can't keep their mouth shut.. basics are important.
