Briefly describe your current occupation(s) and responsibilities and list previous agricultural employment and experiences. If you are currently farming or ranching, please state the size, type(s), and location of the operation.I am a young farmer based out of Dillon. My current business model is a grain and custom farming operation. I have 10 acres of winter wheat and plan on 95 acres of spring wheat for the 2021 season. The custom farming consists of spraying, combine, drill and ground prep. Because of the land costs in southwestern Montana renting ground is my only option to fulfill my 5 year plan of growing a economically feasible farming operation
Acreage1-5, 6-10, 11-40, 41-100, 101-500
Please elaborate on the type(s) of agricultural operation you plan on running.My 10 year plan is to farm 500-1000 acres of small grains and hay rotation. Expanding the custom operation to infuse supplemental income into the company for cash flow purposes.
Please elaborate on the kind of additional training/information that would help you:With the financial burdens of being a young and growing farmer any info on farm service agency programs for beginning farmers would be very helpful
