New Year's Resolutions
New Year’s Resolutions
When you think of the new year you can let your mind wander to dream about the endless
possibilities. The first thing that comes to my mind is a New Year’s Resolution, something you
are going to do differently for the year 2023. Some common resolutions are usually people are going to go to the gym more or maybe try to travel more. Farmers have a little different
approach to a New Year’s resolution. Farmers hope for many different things in the upcoming
Farmer's New Year’s resolution for the year of 2023 consists of higher yields. They are
constantly trying to produce more. They also hope for moisture in any and all forms, but not too much, just the perfect amount. Their resolution is to keep the shop a little cleaner. They also wish for livestock that never gets sick, along with not as many frigid cold nights so they don’t have to always unthaw water tanks. Their resolution also consists of wishing someone came up with a magic eraser, so they can erase those big bills, or at least make them smaller.
Farmers aren’t the only ones with a New Year’s resolution, their wives have one too! Their
resolution consists of wishing for fewer equipment breaks so they do not have to go on as many parts run, and not spending as much money so the farmer goes through the season a little happier with fewer headaches and fewer repair bills. Maybe, just maybe, this will be the year they can finally take that trip they’ve been planning for a much-needed vacation with a few stress-free days away from the farm.
The new year brings a fresh start with lots of new excitement and who knows what the year
will bring us, farmers. My New Year’s resolution for all farmers and helpers is for another
healthy, safe, and successful year. Happy New Year and best of luck to everyone with their New Year’s resolution! ~ Kesley Holdgrafer
