    Farmers work hard in the Spring, summer, and fall planting crops, irrigating, and harvesting them. But during the winter there usually isn't much to do. This is the time of the year we try and take it easy...and plan for the next season. So what are you guys up to this winter? We are working on equipment getting everythig ready for '05 rice season and doing a bunch of snowmobiling this winter.:xmas:

    i get laid off every winter for about 5, 6 weeks with a "return to work date".. its kinda standard for us..we can generally use it considering how much we get our arse handed to us in spring and fall..

    we could be working now that we have our new big building. in the past, you'd be outside, which eliminates cosmetics, glass, gel, etc... we certainly could find projects inside to start up or maintenence. our parts room is a disaster and my bosses 30'er could get painted.

    i think its more my boss needing time away from the stress.. i will sympathize with him on that.. although physically he doesn't get it too bad like i do, he gets alot of mental stress.. my bones can certainly use the time off.. :wink1:

    i collect and do a couple small sidejobs here and there to pay the bills.. mostly just time around the house farting with the truck, etc...

    I'm a Dairy Farmer, no slack time for me. In the south this is the time of year we make the most money, so we are pretty busy now. This job is 7 days a week, come hell or high water, I'm working.

    Yeah, The last two years have been decent with rice since Australia had a big drout, the world market price for rice has been high. Four years ago we didn't make a cent off of the rice itself. Imagine working all year long waiting to get paid at the end of the year and realizing it cost the same to farm this year as you made so you don't get paid....better luck the following year. Fellow farmers that I know that don't own their own harvesting equipment actually lost money. We would go completely broke if it wasn't for the subsdidies.
