Heavens yes. I grew up on an Anderson County soybean farm, had animals in 4-H, and ran a combine on a wheat harvest crew.

Property Owner. Chances are that you will find that there are indeed very few people that work on farms and ranches that are not their own.

Tom didn't know what he was talking about, and his investigations were faulty, and the misconception started out in his very first chapter.

Kinda a stretch, but does harvesting belly button lint, toe jam and ear wax count. Otherwise yes, haying, fence building, cattle and chicken raising, orcharding!

Seems like the 3rd or 4th version of this question this year. But, I guess this is Kansas after all so whatever.....

Boot pit to head house is a long climb. Kind of scary when the dust got thick. Glad I never fell off a grain rail car, though I did lose one full of wheat that jumped the derail and took off a couple of miles east of town on its own. Fun times.

I drove a tractor for years. Sunup to sundown. And, I stacked a lot of bales. Does that count?

I had some plants under a grow light in my basement once.

Two words. Squeeze chute. By the time you figure it out you are a dehorned steer.

I dunno. By the time agriculture has become industry, it's lost its flavor for me.

Picking up hay. Building fence. Building Bull pens/runs/corrals. Assembling grain bins. And entertaining the occassional farmers daughter. Oh, and once I was a preferred sampler quality control engineer for a local marijuana producer. That there is what he called the cash crop.
