This was the last load of wheat harvested last year on the 4th of July. One of the wettest wheat harvest we can remember. It was so wet before going into the dryer it had to be poked to come out wen unloading. Glad this years harvest weather was much more cooperative.

Tough day for the MoCo farmer in the political world yesterday. The County Council PHED committee was hearing a ZTA (zoning text amendment) that would have nullified certain requisites for having or building a tenant house for farmers to utilize. However, due to last minute opposition from certain civic groups in the Ag reserve who want to place tighter restrictions on allowing tenant house to be constructed, The ZTA was not approved. The end result is the actions of this opposition will now make it more difficult and problematic for farmers to operate their business in a cost efficient manner by providing housing for their employees. Some of these people who oppose believe you must have 100-200 acres to be able to build a tenant house. I know of many farms that are very labor intensive on less than 50 acres of land. This not only hurts the farmer, but also farm employees. Particularly farms that are labor intensive such as vegetable and horticulture oriented. I guess the Ag Reserve is only "RESERVED" for the select few who can afford to live in a rural setting in Montgomery County.

Montgomery County Rural Roads tree trimming program..... Road tractors and farm machinery!
This is a clear indication of why farmers and other individuals who operate larger vehicles are not huge fans of rural rustic roads. It is not that we don't appreciate a country road, it's the fact that they are unsafe for our friends and families of the community. This damage was done by a branch on River road (which used to be well maintained). It's a good thing there wasn't a passenger or a school bus full of kids! They would have brought home an ass full of glass!
Estimated damage $500.00

There was NO support for HB928 yesterday seeking to repeal the agriculture sales and use tax exemption. Agricultural organizations including MGPA, MD Farm Bureau and Delmarva Poultry Industry along with our farmer members did a great job of explaining why this sales tax exemption is important for farmers.

The following was written by Dr. Don Paarlberg, a distinguished professor of agriculture economics who grew up on a small farm in nearby Lake County. Dr. Paarlberg served in several presidential administrations and advisory positions.
In 1934 when Dr. Paarlberg was in his early 20’s, he wrote the
following article.

Qualifications for a Farmer
First of all, a farmer has to like his work. If he doesn’t—if he doesn’t like to get his hands dirty and if he doesn’t like long hours, open fields and solitude—then he’d better let farming alone and try something easy, like being a lawyer or running a non-farm business.

A farmer has to be an optimist, too, to tide him over those periods when his commonsense would tell him that everything had gone wrong. He has to have a reserve of hope that he can call on to bridge him over at a time like that. You have to measure a farmer by the amount of punishment he can take.
You can make a businessman in five or six year and a doctor in eight or 10, but it takes a lifetime to make a farmer. A farmer’s education begins the day he is old enough to stir the soil and continues until he is laid to rest in it.

A farmer has to be a manager, to choose his crops and plan his schedule in order to save time and eliminate waste motion. He must be able to distinguish between things of prime importance and secondary detail. He has to be able to live within his income and without it when he has none. He has to have a practical working knowledge of a wider range of subjects than any professional man. His is an education in its most practical sense.

A farmer has to know the land intimately, like a living thing—its chemistry, its peculiarities, when to plow and when to plant, how to nurse a tender crop through frost and flood, through drought and heat, how to wrestle a living from the stubborn soil. He must know the weeds and how to fight them, insects and plant diseases, the weather and its effects. He must know all the breeds of livestock, how to feed and care for them, how to treat an animal for common ailments, how to recognize symptoms and diagnose diseases. He makes better use of his knowledge of the principles of breeding and sanitation than the human race does for its own stock.

A farmer has to know the markets, when to buy and when to sell. In normal times, a farmer buys a wider range of goods than anyone else, which means that he has to have a well-developed sense of values. The farmer figures in every branch of economics: he is present in every business deal; he is a factor in every political question. To keep abreast of the times, he must know and understand the working of everything that touches his life. He must know which groups are his friends and which are his enemies—whom to trust and whom to fight, whom to work with and whom to oppose.

A farmer has to know machinery and how to care for it. He has to know how to adjust a plow so it will turn a clean furrow with the least draft. He has to know how to start an engine on a zero morning, and how to patch up a piece of machinery to keep it going and finish the job until he has time to fix it. He must learn all the lows of physics by experience—he must be able to engineer any job from laying a string of tile to leveling up the foundation for a new shed.

A farmer has to be his own boss, his own carpenter, blacksmith, mechanic, electrician, plumber, mason, and painter. He has to be able to hire men, boss them, and use them to good advantage. He must know how to build a new fence or repair a leaky roof, how to set a shock of grain so it’ll stand and how to stack hay so it won’t rain in. He has to know how to handle horses—how to get the most work out of them without abuse; how to tell when they have reached the limit of their endurance. He must know how to break a colt to make a good horse of him. He can’t be a good farmer if he doesn’t have a way with horses.

A farmer must know the feeling of frustration that comes from working with poor stock and poor equipment, when he knows so well what he should have. His is the continual philosophy of “doing without”.

A farmer has to work with his head and his hands, with his heart and with his soul. So the next time someone tells you he is a farmer, try to look past his dirty overalls and see the whole man.
