I liked the comerical, I'm not a farmer, I do live in farm country. 1/3 of my best friends are farmers. I would trade my easy desk job of 52 weeks a year for a farming job any day of the week.
I'm not knocking any of them and yes we do need farmers.
BUT I do get tired of always hearing them moan about seed prices, Fuel prices, ferterlize, we need rain, I wish it would stop raining, I never see a happy for what they got farmer.
they all drive new trucks and live in huge houses! They play golf year around! they go on trips!Duck and deer hunt every day of the season, Today's farmers have more time off than any working man in the work force I know.
Granted they work long hours for planting season and the Harvest, but other then that you can find most farmers I know on the Golf course 5 days a week. and they can afford the green fees!
The farmers in the commerical died out years ago! Very few if any work that hard year around.
Wonder if I could just be a part time farmer and golf 3 days a week. You need to come visit some of the farmers I know. Yes they live in nice houses, drive new trucks, but they're working 7 days a week and no they don't golf, fish, or hunt all the time either or have 9 to 5 hours and home every night with the family. I grew up on one of those small farms so I have a low tolerance level for folks who never had to be on that side of the fence and only saw farmers as they drove by the field with their families going for a nice drive in the country.

I guess I live in a different place than some. Most of the farmer's I know are God fearing, hard working, modest folks like most of the rest of us. Many are in their 60's and 70's and are still hitting it daylight to dark on most days. I've seen those huge row crop farms with the latest state of the art equipment, but I don't know any of them. I've talked to some who's biggest worry is they've worked they're whole life to have something to leave to the younger generations in they're family, but say the younger generation has no interest in carrying on the family farm. Then what happens, the younger ones who inherit it decide theres more and easier profit in farming asphalt and subdivisions. Yeah, God bless them, these are the farmers I thought about when I saw that commercial.
