Gday all

Gday all 

great website hoping to get some good ideas from you all

I was brought up farming until the age of approx 14 then i decided to move to town and enjoy some town life for a while.

now living back out of town on 37acres and looking for some ideas on what to do with it, approx 20 acres of it can be farmed and im looking for some profitable ideas to be self sufficient as well as make a bit of profit from it.

farming has changed so much since my experiences with it, we used to run approx 2000 sheep, and crop around 800acres this was all done with either 2 super90 tractors and a 585 massey harvester also had a 1066 inter tractor, and for a while we a harvester that had a chamberlain tractor in reverse bolted up to the back of it, it used the tractors front wheels to steer it and tractors wheels were removed and replaced with cogs that drove a chain to the gear box of the harvester,it was a good setup took around half a day to conert it back to a tractor for sowing season and then vice versa for harvest season.

ive also posted a question in the forum, looking forward to getting some ideas

thanks and thanks for letting me be a part of this site

cheers

matt
