Big deal,when u have all sorts of hired help try doing every bit of chores buy urself 7 days a week for months on end. If i had help i would enjoy showing my dairy but i have better things to to , because any normal dairy man allways has work to do it's a never-ending job.

This is true but, did it ever occur to you to do something fun for a while? All work and no play makes you very tired and very lonely when your wife and kids leave you.

.......... So, just how many head of dairy cows are you pushing today, all by yourself?... You know, being an independent dairy farmer today is a splendid and very necesary form of occupation.... You serve the people and our great nation by all you do for it.... Your are to be applauded!

Thank you norm being a farmer is very hard. I grew up I'n a family farm and had siblings to help, and as we grew they went there seprate ways as did i. But when my dad got very sick and was at the point of losing what he worked all his life for i couldn't let it happen. So today my father is a little bit better and still can't work and never will be able to ever again so i have no choice our farm I'n my hands is now third generation, some people don't understand what family means i left my life I'n the world and brought my family I'n to this life out of care for the ones who raised me.

.......... I just don't see how you fine farm folks are able to do it, to survive in todays world economy.... It is so hard,so very very hard, it takes total dedication on your part, your total family support too.... I once knew of a retired dairy farmer that told me he hadn't had a single day off in 36 years.... That is just incredable!!!... You people (Farmers) are the corner stone, the very heart, of what once made America great!... You feed the world, many people forget that!... Without the great American farmer, there is no America!

.......... What I wonder is, when you are through, when it's time for you to finally retire, who will take your place.... More and more of the younger generation is leaving the hard work, the dedication, the motivation and the necessary commitment that is required to be an American farmer and are moving to an easier life in the city.... With each passing generation there are less farmers having to produce more and more product for an ever increasing population of people both, here in America and throughtout the entire world.... For those of you remaining American farmers out there, never enough phrase and/or accolades can ever be said or written.... You farm people are the greatest Americans of them all.... THANK YOU!!!

.......... Work 24/7 yes, that is the plight of the great American farmer!... Yet they do it, they do it to keep America great, to keep a roof over their families heads and to help feed America and the entire world.... A great and worthy tradition that!... How anyone could have any issue with that is beyond me, that is beyond any normal sense of reason.... Being an American farmer is a calling, the most worthy calling of all perhaps.

.......... If one has spent any time at all on this Fort Plain topix webpage they will shortly find that there is a certain element here, an element of dissent, of a contrary nature, and of a mental instability to be sure.... One must learn to ignore and isolate these dissenters from their normal course of postings here.... They add nothing to the general discussion, and post under various fake and false names.... That should tell you something.

.......... I KNOW, I KNOW!... I fully understand!... No Problem!... By-the-way, in general, where is your farm located?... Are you somewhere in the Mohawk valley itself, or perhaps, you are on one of the valleys rims.... Another thing (question), perhaps a little to personal, but, are you married?... It will be really difficult to find a good olde fashioned American girl to share your farm life with if you're not already married I'm afraid to have to tell you.... Good olde fashioned American girls today are very hard to come by and most modern day young girls (women) want the bright lights and frantic activity of big city life.... But, hopefully, there is someone out there that will see you for what you are really worth (in your heart) and choose to share her life with you.

.......... I believe you said in a post of above that your Father and Mother are still both alive, and I am guessing, are still living on the farm.... I am supposing that they are both of retirement or very near to retirement age.... My great and wonderful wife and I are are now both retired for some few years (8) now.... I hope that they both (your parents) have several more years ahead of them and that they can be of great assistance to you in helping you to run the farm.

.......... As I have stated and previously posted above, there are some real clowns, fools, idiots and mental degenerates that come on here just to make monkeys of themselves.... Well, all I have got to say about that is "NOTHING BEATS A SELF MADE MAN!" ... Hehehe Hahaha Hohoho....(:->)

.......... Well that is really wonderful and great news, that you are already happily married and with two healthy young boys also!... Farmer, I am very happy and thrilled for you!... Yet another success story from that great and wonderful olde Mohawk valley.... Success in life is never easy there (or anywhere else in America these days), but it can be done through long, and honest hard work.... Yes, hopefully when it comes time for you to retire, one of your two lads will wish to continue on with the honorable tradition of being an American farmer.

God bless you Norm and you too "Revenge"!
Annanimity, you can fuck a duck. Farmers feed you 3 times a day and you have that attitude?
Just because someone chooses farming (the noblest of professions) doesn't make them internet-retarded. Get a clue.
I honestly wish I could go back to work on the farm because I believe hard work and honest sweat are the building blocks of a personís character. I believe many of the best things in life are free: the splendor of a sunrise, the rapture of wide open spaces, the exhilarating sight of your land greening each spring. I believe true happiness comes from watching your crops ripen in the field, your children growing tall in the sun, your whole family feeling the pride that springs from their shared experience.
You want to be anti-farmer...peddle that shit somewhere else because St. Johnsville farmers outnumber every other profession and since its such a labor intensive job you stand to receive quite an ass-kicking for your point of view.
