My daughter crawfishes to save money for college because coming from a farming family we can't afford to pay for it. She gets up every morning and goes to town to buy her gas, bait and sacks. She goes back to the pond and cuts up her fish and baits and fishes 200 hundred acres by herself. When she finishes, she cleans her cans and her boat and repairs broken cages, because she can't afford new ones. She is only getting a 1.25 for number ones. Her buyer pays her by check, but every once in a while someone calls her for a sack and will pay her 1.50 to 2.00. The middle man used to make 5 cents a lb, now they have gotten greedy and are making more than the farmer who puts out all the expense and labor. I am very proud of her, because she has a very good work ethic and it is very hard work for a young lady who weighs only 115 lbs but she works as hard as her brothers who are twice her size.
Sounds like you did an awesome job of rearing your children! Your daughter will go far in this world!!

Lets not forget that those farmers are bringing those crawfish to the market in 60 thousand dollar trucks with a 15 dollar license plate on it, when the poor helper has to pay the full price for a license plate and drives a regular old truck.

BTW Mother, what is your daughter driving to and from town to get that gas and supplies? Be truthful now, we might know her and we wouldn't want you to lie on the internet.

Well, I read this earlier tonight and didn't respond because I didn't post the first time to get into an argument, it was only to let people know that all farmers aren't as you described earlier. But I do feel the need to defend my daughter. She drives a 1998 Ford F150 that she bought 5 years ago and it is the only vehicle that she owns. My vehicle is a 2003 and my husbands truck is a 2003. After telling my husband about this he wants me to put his name on here and said he would gladly show you what our daughter does in a day. But, I don't think my daughter would appreciate me putting our name on here being that she doesn't even know I am talking about her, but if you would give me a way of contacting you, we could set up a day for you to spend on our farm. I do understand what you are talking about, some farmers driving expensive vehicles and living large, which makes things look bad for other farmers. Most of them have other income, own their own land or they are dishonest and crooks. I know this because my husband has family members who fall under these categories. And by the way my daughter does have another job at the Regatta Restaurant in Lake Arthur, very nice place and very good food, y'all should go and try it out!

Thanks everyone for the kind words, I am a proud Mother of all our kids! Didn't mean to sound like I am bragging. Just wanted to stand up for our farmers, who take on most of the labor and expense, only for the middle man and restaurants to make most of the profit. But of course without out them we would have no one to buy our crawfish.

I myself got teary eyed, what a hard worker, you don't find that too often. Girls doing hard labor intense work. You taught her well!
Bless her this morning, hope she has Neopreen gloves, that water is cold!
Thanks, I will tell her about the gloves, evidently the ones she uses aren't very good because her hands were purple when she came in yesterday. We actually started making her run a few rows when she was twelve thinking it would make her realize how hard it is and make her want to go to college, because she always disliked school. But it worked the opposite, she actually likes the work. I think it's in her blood just like her Dad and brothers! I won't give up on trying to get her to go to college though.

I am still looking to see me first ( live boiled crawfish ). And be very proud of the few kids and young adults that work. I scared it is about to be a lost art.

You don't have to worry about it being a lost art. There is too much cash money being made.

Without a doubt, this is one hell of a mature and intelligent response. Oh, and keeping your family's name out of it was the right call. I'm fairly certain that your husband initially suggested it as a way of verifying that everything you've said is exactly the way things are for you/your family. No need. After reading tons of BS, honesty is pretty easy to spot. You sound like good people-God bless you/family.

No, I don't know anything about farming, yet everything I have posted has hit right where I wanted it to hit. If it wasn't true, none of you would of answered back.
I love the way that you stated "some of these farmers work very hard". You are actually agreeing with me, that some don't, yet you are faulting me for saying it but it is ok for you to admit it. Also as they do have to pay back, is also not always true. At the end of the year, some usually just refinance the loan, because some can't pay if all off.
