Hey everyone , i stopped by today to ask for a prayer for my sis and bro n law that live in Pa. They are having a very hard time right now in the dairy business. The milk prices have dropped and the feed bill
has risen , so much so they are selling it all off . 200 head of holstiens are selling and or sold and shortly will be the farm. Its been their bread and butter for over 35 yrs . Hard to tell what will happen next . They have there dairy operation near millerstown pa. ed/ann acres ,
Barbara and Barry Lucas. I ask for a prayer for them.

Farmers are some of the hardest working people I know of. Dairy farmers must be on the job 365 days a year at least twice a day. I have seen many dairy farms go out of buisness just like you have described and it breaks my heart, I have been one of them. We will pray for your family, it is not just a job change it is a lifestyle change. Our country will pay for allowing this to happen. May God comfort them as only he can.

I hate to hear it when farmers have to call it quits. Farming is our MOST crucial resource! We still don't get milk from China! Prayers sent.

sorry to hear Dennis, I know the farm and my wife delivers their mail.
we will lift them in prayer as we do all the farmers.
crops are pretty good around here, we got the rain we needed to keep things going but with the drought in the mid west anyone buying feed and supplement is hurting. anyone just crop farming is sitting on a cash crop this year.

Will keep them in mind during prayer time.

My prayers are with them. My childhood friend was a farmers daughter, the son was my brothers friend, and the other sister was in an earlier grade then me. they sold & went to ohio. I miss lending ahand at their dairy farm though not so much helping collect the goose eggs. they'd use me for bait. I feel bad about the farmers in America. Talk about over worked & under paid!
