More than an actively engaged younger farmer. My step-father wants to purchase 15 cows to compliment his paid for 15 cows & calves. He has no debt, other collateral besides existing cattle [about 600% more], but they also want a lien on his farm which is paid for.
Their reason is he is not physically taking day to day care of them himself. He is 86 and in a care center,but makes the decisions on the operation of his farm.
