This is not meant to be a slandering question by any means, only research for myself!

Of those people that use this board, how many are under the age of 35?

If you are under the age of 35, have you ever lived off your farm or ranch? If you have lived off the farm/ranch, did you work within another industry other than agriculture?

For all ages: Do you use the computer for more than email, Internet and possibly book work? Do you have your cattle records on your computer?

Thank you.

Have been trying to live off the ranch all my life!

I've never lived away from a farm or ranch.......first my parents, then my in-laws, now on our own ranch.

Was 35 almost 30 years ago!

No book keeping on this computer, just for education/entertainment/communication.

We have all of the ranch records, cows, bulls, carcass data, income, expenses, you name it, it is on the computer. Have DTN, many would consider that frivolous for a rancher, if the packer offers me a price, I can turn it on and see if he is fair, blowing smoke or bullish. Can find hay prices moisture predictions, anything that you want. This is not as it was for my grandparents, anyone with a sorry [email protected]@ed cow could turn a profit. The more you know, the more you know where to go. :lol:

# 1 -- No

# 2 I guess # 1 than leaves me out

#3 Use the computer for many things including having a website for the horses, but the old book in the pocket is 10 times handier-- have records back into the 1940's all pretty much listed the same way and haven't seen anywhere the dot.com cowboy is paying any extra.........
