I also have a railroad car unloading / cleaning service for ag related products that keeps me busy at least 1 day per week.

Our fall 2019 plan is to break & make show or sale ready half dozen baby calves while harvesting row crops with modern equipment. We do not ride horses but do ride Hondas. Interns will be able to choose which enterprise they want to participate in; either grain harvest or cattle production.
