Hey Godofredo, how was your crop season(or is it always crop season. i see your price came up. I wish ours would! Looks like winter should improve. Grains are creeping up now making us nervouse since we did not pre-buy any after last years mess. Best wishes
Sounds like you have a lot of dairy down there by you! I have a friend that lives on a dairy farm milking around 3,000 cows! He's like the biggest family owned dairy in the state of Wisconsin. The biggest dairy farm in the state is milking 7,000 cows! That's invested farming though! I live in Brown county, WI and go to school in Kewanee County, WI! Kewanee County has the most dairy farms in the state of WI and there are only like 12,000 people and 30,000 dairy cows in the county! That's a lot of farms!! Dairy is very big around by me and all the farms have a hard time getting land!! Do you make your own crops on your farm?
Efficiency...I agree with Ryan Curtis in that there is only so much efficiency a dairy operation can implement. This is the realization in permeating throughout U.S. dairy farmers today. Survival in the dairy farming climate has moved from efficiency to using or rather eroding equity - when it is available - to keep the farm leveraged for cash flow.
My sister and brother-in-law milk 100 cows. Thankfully, they are paying all of their bills (my brother-in-law is not currently drawing a salary and they rely on unpaid family labor) but my sister doesn't believe that will be the case in 5 months.
Hi, Your farm looks beautiful. Cows look very comfortable. It has been very enlightening to hear of Mexico's dairy state of affairs. Imports -- that is just something that is laughable these days isn't it. Many in U.S., myself included just recently, talk about import issues with milk protein concentrates replacing our raw milk and nonfat dry milk coming from China and other countries. That's probably why we are trying to sell it to Mexico. What a circus our global economy has become.
Right now, I am actively involved in an effort that is pursuing our Sec. of Agriculture to adjust pricing for immediate change. We are also pursuing long-term change with a plan than incorporates a cost-of-production price with supply management. It has been introduced to our legislatures as the Specter-Casey Bill s.889.
