Subject: Farm Departure List

Quote

This board is on the fridge at farm -

Farm now has open kitcheb sink drain, new plumbing below kitchen sink, AND the septic tank has been pumped !

Little yellow cat recovering from near death - Biomox (lil's old med) helped her recover from very hard time.  Most cats in Morton.  Caught 3 possums in Morton (1 by hand) moved 3.5 miles West.

2 auto feeders in garage, 2 now in Morton.  Will likely shut half off over summer.

Collected 20 more ears of corn feeding pheasants in wind breaks and around.

I can't wait to hear the story about #10 on the departure list....




I asked my dad about #10 on the checklist.....

Couple yrs ago cat had head stuck in can.  Had to force head from can.  Lucky it did not break its neck.   So cans get taken to city for disposal.  They do not burn anyway.

My dad met with the government check writing people this week and we cant get any CRP money for our playa lakes unless they have been farmed for 4 years so the currently the plan is to break out the pasture in 2021 and plant crops for a couple of years.

Better idea than my dad trying to run cattle/meat goats so I'm all for it.

also got details on the 1 possum my dad caught by hand...it was chilling in the morton building just eating all the catfood and my dad saw it take off into the hay bale condo...he moved a couple hay bales and grabbed it by the tail then stuck it in the wire cage/trap he had laying around.

Direct quote "I was holding it by the tail and they are pretty roly poly so I thought of just holding it out the window while I drove it 3.5 miles away but my hand might of got tired. Luckily the trap was a couple of feet away so I put the possum in there for the ride"

My kids will be posting about my hobby farming one day. I'm about to buy 20 acres with a pond, tobacco barn, and animal barn.

No, no , no that's a misinterpretation. The whole parcel has to have been "farmed" and defined as ag land for at least 4 years. For God's sake don't till through the low spots/playa lakes since you won't grow anything anyway and it'll make it easier for them to meet the definition of a playa lake wetland down the road. Just change the classification of the entire parcel to "cropland" via farming for it to be eligible for CRP signup - keep in mind your property taxes will go up with this too. Then after 4 years the parcel (as long as the it meets the other requirements at sign-up time) would be eligible for standard CRP, with the playa lakes being a separate CRP contract.

Good thing we have wind to save us!

https://www.usatoday.com/story/news/nation/2020/02/16/wind-energy-can-help-american-farmers-earn-money-avoid-bankruptcy/4695670002/

Some interesting stats for those who want to TLDR version (but you should read it as all the wind farms mentioned are based in KS)

- In 2018 KS was the 4th largest wind power producing state and the largest percentage wise at 36% of all power generated (seems high but what do i know)

- 20 Million a year in lease payments across the state of KS

No cattle sun dials for those of us in Wabaunsee and Douglas Co.

I guess Brownback made the Flint Hills all off limits while governor.

Millions of dollars going into NO county as I keyboard.  Much needed income for the smaller farmers,retirees, and local businesses.  I'll just combine the wind payments with the rest of my 1099 income and invest it, I see it as gravy.   :driving:
