A lot of those expensive pieces of machinery are used for custom farming, or hired out work specifically to pay for said piece of machinery. I do custom work for folks who don't have the means to plant their own crops but still can irrigate, fertilize and harvest said crops. I am also available to do any one of those jobs for any customer that wishes to hire me.

Easy to tell who farms and who doesn't when reading this thread. If you think farmers don't work hard just because they have autosteer and stuff that's just pretty ignorant. To run modern equipment you practically have to have a computer science degree on top of all the knowledge of what varieties of which crop to plant where and when, and when and what to put on them to keep them growing and keep them from being killed of by pests or other plants. Plus you have to do yield mapping to do variable rate fertilizer application for the future and possibly make changes to growing strategies for that field. It's also not like you put the seeds in the ground and they grow and you harvest them in the fall. You have to constantly monitor the health of the plants and do what you can to keep them healthy if you're going to get a decent yield. There's way more work than you might think even though machines may steer themselves now. Also, on the vast majority of autosteer systems you still have to make the turn at the end of the field yourself, so it's not like you can just fall asleep at the controls.

Plus a lot farmers actually don't have autosteer and all of that fancy newfangled stuff. It's just all over the industry news because it's still relatively new technology that's always being improved on.

Then you have livestock operations that have to have a heavy human element. You all should come over sometime when we're working calves and castrating the bulls. It's loads of fun.

Also, everything I just went over is just barely scratching the surface. Until you live and work on a farm you have no idea just how much work actually has to happen to stay out of the red.

Yeah farming isnt a joke. My aunt has a ranch/farm and where she has a bunch of horses and then part where she grows corn. It's a **** ton or work. Actually, i'm tempted to move out to missouri to work there for her to take the load off. But you know what they say about working for family....

That combine might drive itself, but there still has to be somebody sitting in it. Then the farmer has to do more to be able to pay for that combine.

I feel this thread has gone off on a tangent and I feel I may be responsible for it. Sorry for the mini hijack but thank you gentlemen who piped in with experience and defended those of us who grow food. Here in California we have enough hoops to jump through before we even harvest, then we have to compete with the fallacies of the organic market. More people need to be informed as to what farmers do and what mysterious things we do in the winter. And there is a local society of farmers that have certain fields that run equipment solely powered by horses, mules and oxen. Just so nobody forgets how hard it was for their forefathers. And there are no shortcuts, all repairs are done with period methods and tools.

I still buck hay bales and almond brush by hand. There's no machine to emulate human hands.

The biggest question is why were you there on property you had no permission to be on. All land is owned by somebody. Dont give us all a bad name by guessing.


And for these guys quoted below, I'm glad yall will stand up and admit when you have done something wrong.... these are all examples of whats wrong with people today. Admit you did wrong, dont step around it and skirt the blame on others. I'm sure if it was the farmer posting up on here instead of the OP people would be talking about how to sue the guy that damaged his property.

You can call the cops and say he took your info at gun point and he'll have pictures of your info on his camera/phone. Goes both ways.

1. Poor decisions? - Check
2. Poor advice? - Check
3. Hearsay and conjecture presented as fact? Check.

Congratulations, this thread is officially ignorant.

That's right. You've heard about them. You've been told to get one. Your parents hoped it would all work out. Now, one is on it's way to your home.

Go outside and stand by your mailbox right now, because (hopefully) very soon you'll get it.




Come back and tell us all how much you've learned just as soon as you get.. "A CLUE!"

The easiest way to stay out of trouble is to avoid it. I'm not saying that I haven't done stupid **** myself, because I have. But knowingly going onto private property and tearing **** up for fun is unbelievably dumb. It doesn't matter if it's a field or somebody's front lawn, you just don't do it. Don't waste other peoples time or money for your own enjoyment. People get shot for a lot less man.
