    Farming is a hard thing to break into and a hard thing to keep doing. Most small farmers, unless they have outside income, have a rough go of it. Even when they get a break, it's usually time to repair equipment or do some of the other 40 million things that are left undone during planting and tending and harvesting or shearing or slaughtering or hauling or spraying or whatever. Add in livestock and the job is 24/7/365.

    Even for those in the best of health and energy, it's a hard job.
