The end of medicine creek
But not the blog
its been a hectic year, with my gran passing away, She had asked me in January to put the farm up for sale as my mum was consistently fighting that I was not the correct person to run it and didn't want me to have to fight through the courts to keep it in my name, she said what ever money she/I get will be mine, what to do, we know the debt of $940,000 Loan, and $60,000 personal and $60,000 farm casino debt. I finalised a sale deal for $2,000,000 for both farms with no tractors or livestock, which most of the tractors and equipment I sold off, I decided to sell off the livestock due to not knowing where I'm going to move. with all the grain and livestock sold off I had $1,058,282 with $15,000 x2 going to the casino debts and $18,800 paid off loan interest leaving me with $1,009,482.

Spent most of the season waiting for snow to melt, then it was a rush to lime, plough, fertilise, cultivate and plant field 3 (90ac) in Soybeans. luckily field 7(20ac) was easier just cultivate and plant in corn. I did hire another cultivator to speed up cultivating field 7. Bought a new logistic gooseneck flatbed trailer and a unverferth gooseneck seedrunner and i have a bright shiny red Massey Ferguson telehandler on demo for the year.
