Michael Fox Special on Optimism

southeast, NE

Did anyone watch Michael Foxs special last night on being an optimist? He visited with some dairy farmers in upstate New York about the work involved in farming, low milk prices, etc. He asked one of the farmers how they stayed so optimistic. The farmer replied a little bit of denial and a little bit of insanity. Lately Ive been thinking farming is a lot of denial and a lot of insanity.

Anybody else agree with me?

Exactly - no little bit about it. And I've got to tell you, there are more days than not that I wonder why we're still doing this. Dairy farming is definitely a young man's game -

NJ, we saw this in a rerun the other night. Stan was very pleased with the way it was handled and like the whole show. I have a lot of friends right now who are up to their necks in 'what do we do now' and it is hard to see.
