ah...the mantra of the survivorI get to the “I’m alright Jack” stage with the whole thing if I’m honest.
We haven’t borrowed a lot of money.
We haven’t spent a lot on shiny kit or toys.
We haven’t bought land at top prices.
We don’t pay stupid rents.
We don’t take on more than we can sensibly manage.
We don’t employ expensive people.
We saw reduction in subs coming.
We do off farm non ag work.
We don’t run fancy motors.
We don’t go on foreign holidays.
We live modestly.
We’ll be alright.
As you say, there are so many different factions in the farming industry that trying to reach any kind of consensus is impossible.
So I give up arguing and we will do as we see fit and let the rest do as they like.
I’ve given up trying to change the world. It’s a waste of time and effort. Nobody listens. Let them learn the hard way.
