An "old girl" still going strong BP ;-)

And before any one peer reviews this saying "it is a tractor, not a woman", "old girl" is a term we often use here for tractors / combines / farm utes, etc :-P

Yes I guess that is the problem nowadays BP. I think you are either born with work ethic or not; I dont know if it can be taught.

Alot of younger workers drifting away from farming to higher paid jobs in the mining industry, which is a shame. Who knows what impact this will have in the years to come.

Re: Versatile 895
Roel, What BP talks about here is very true. Sad but True. I've told the true story of a grazier that needed to sell cattle for $100 a head to get through another year, the agent would only give him $80 he then walked into his shed while the agent was there and ended it all. we hear of stories every week where farmers are killing themselves with the onging drought. some havent harvested a crop of any more than seed for next year for five years straight. these are farmers that have made a comfortable un aided living for 30 years prior to this drought. many have said why are they farming these areas then..for the above reason a comfortable living for 30 years prior. Farmers often choose to shoot sheep as selling them means they recieve an account for yard fees at sale yards as the price isnt good enough to cover costs. Its just a big mess and untill the heavens open up it....wich we all here in aussie hope it will...things wont improve.

Re: Versatile 895
BP, nice tractor!
unfortunately some people (specially government ones) don´t understand the importance of farming. In my country the politicians aren´t very interested in agriculture. I just have to ask them: what are people going to eat? computers, microchips? Is not fair that they don´t recognize how hard is to farm in these days.
regards,
Victor
