According to the Wall Street Journal in it's 200 best to worst jobs, farming is 161 and dairy farming is 198, only slightly better than lumberjack at 199 and roustabout at 200. Interesting that they singled dairy farming out as separate from farming in general. Actuary came in first, by the way, closely followed by software engineer at 2 and computer systems analyst at 3.

Opinions? I'll share mine later in the thread.
