    There is a large segment of our population which knows nothing about farming. They think it is all done by big corporations. They also think a farm with assets worth several $million must be a large farm. They know nothing of the value of land and the equipment needed to work it.

  • This is a great example of too-highly paid bureaucrats with too little to do trying to justify their jobs. Roll-over protection and seat belts on tractors? Are you effing kidding me? This is the kind of thing that would have worked as a joke not very long ago. That it’s real is tragic. I worked on farms in high school (tobacco and horse), and we had 12 year-olds driving pickups in the fields. I learned to drive a tractor long before I learned to drive a car.
    It’s long past time to tell these people to stick it.
