    what is important is that WE as individuals have the skills to farm ourselves on a small scale...another tradition, as simple as growing can be, we as parents can pass down to our children, simple gardening! from understanding soil, weather and seeds... basic 101 for you to know!!


    do you know?

    Most of the beef and hog operations are long gone from around here. You do see pasture fed beef raised for premium prices.

    I see too that Canada has had a Mad Cow case reported too recently.
    What's the Frequency, Kenneth?

    432Hz

    yes a case in alberta....cattle prices are in a bubble here, so hopefully this is the excuse to bring prices back to reality....just bought buffalo meat last night as i wasnt paying what people wanted for beef....would raise some myself, if i didnt hate those dumb animals.

    There is a buffalo ranch not far from me. They feed them the peelings and scraps form a local ready to eat fresh fruit processor. They say they can't hardly get them to eat corn. One of the buffaloes they raised as a pet until it got too big to be in the house.....

    I'll second that.
    I invested in Sask farmland over the last 5 years; buy and lease.

    Rent provides ~6% "dividend".
    Will be selling over the next few years to reap very healthy cap gains (300+%)

    People should know that Sask land was price controlled, in a way, up until very recently.
    It's just playing catch-up (more farmers whining) but still well below everyone else.
