New combine cost


I sm sure it was only about two yr ago there was a story in the paper about how the previous policy was to have three combines working seprately, but this bloke was going to put them all together.


I think if your passionate/enjoy farming going and buying a new/second combine or whatever, and you can afford it what difference does it make?
theres lots of people spend loads of money on cars/ holidays etc

id say most farmers are farming because there ruled by their heart and not by their brain (me included)
most other business oriented people would cash it all in for a better return
Because he'd rather spend it on fancy porsche that can't actually earn anything.
