    Just a couple extra hired hands to run it all.

    Just the maintenance crew would be quite a few men!

    That is what I would call a LARGE operation. Thanks for posting.

    Quite an impressive operation!! It bears out once again the old saying that, "it takes money to make money". I can't imagine how much they have tied up in equipment?? I bet the equipment dealers they buy their equipment from treat them like royalty lol.
    Nothing could be finer than riding my JD790 in South Carolina!!

    2001 John Deere 790 4x4 with Model 70 FEL, 5ft International World Agritech bush hog, 5ft Wallberg BB, 5ft Frontier disc harrow, 5ft King Kutter II Rototiller, 5ft Cultipacker, 5ft Sitrex finish mower, Leinbach PHD with 9" & 12" augers, Leinbach middlebuster, Leinbach #11 Field Cultivator, boom pole, custom 3pt handi-hitch, clamp on bucket forks, Pat's Easy Change.

    Nothing runs like a Deere, or smells like a John....

    I swanny...that one tractor showed it was averaging about 35 gallons/hour. Can you imagine this multiplied by around 30-40+ machines? And all the Peterbilts...he would need his own refinery. Wow.....I am in awe. I saw one account to where he was farming right at 100,000 acres...or +/-150 square miles.

    at that rate, you skip middle man. and have phone numbers to tech crews and top sales folks of various manufactures. and it would not be slight of hand but just a necessity.

    I agree 100%. Raising grocery prices on working people to bankroll farmers is what ethanol is.
