"I retired $150,000 worth of harvesting equipment when I went to this system of 12 Aprils. $150,000 worth of equipment I no longer need. I have a conventional farm crop. I sow millets, soygeans and small grains. I sow them all to be harvested. The big difference is I don't sharpen knives or grease the bearings or whatever. I harvest them with a cow. She takes it from a crop to the rumen to the milk. I don't have to spend $477 a month on my harvester or a big silo or tractors or choppers. My cows enjoy what goes on here and so do I."
