Family farm and tractor

Postby Brazragore В» 19.07.2019

.

To a casual observer, tractors are useful tools that help farmers boost their output. But Matt Rothe has a very different view. Rothe had wanted to take over the farm's operations after getting an earth environmental science degree from Dartmouth College. However, his father explained that the farm, started by their German ancestors, would not remain sustainable for another generation. When you look at what's happened to our farm — and the experiences that I've had and we've had — I think you can begin to see some of the issues and why the system is the way that it is.

The story starts with Rothe's great, great grandparents, who moved to Colorado and became tenant farmers on another owner's property, for a time living in a remodeled chicken coop.

Eventually, they were able to purchase a farm of their own where they raised a variety of vegetables along with chickens for meat and eggs, and horses to pull the plows. On an average day, the family first fed the horses and then had breakfast themselves before heading out to work in the fields until noon.

After a bite to eat, it was back to work until sunset. Raising a diversity of farm crops carried benefits. Rothe said: "During the year, maybe the corn didn't do so well, but the beans, potatoes, and sugar beets did better. You've got a risk management system built in. Then, in the late 30s, they bought a tractor, which they considered a "cool piece of machinery that's going to be able to do all of this work.

It was going to make our lives so much better, and we were probably going to get rich. Farmers rarely have much cash on hand, so the family took out a loan to buy the equipment, he said. They hadn't anticipated costs of diesel fuel and maintenance for the new machines, so they bought more farmland where they could plant more corn in order to earn enough to pay off the new debts. Then they, and other farmers, began purchasing pesticides and fertilizers, which Rothe said were introduced by the U.

Department of Agriculture as another way to boost yields. Farmers also added mechanized irrigation systems, which allowed them to grow even more corn on overly dry acreage where cattle had previously grazed. The cycle of buying ever more powerful tractors, irrigation systems, and other new farm tools on credit, and then purchasing more acreage to boost output to pay off the debt, continued until the Rothe's farmed mainly corn, the crop most in demand. They sold their cattle business in the s.

Their crop yields grew. Eventually, the family sold their farm to a regional private equity firm with a familiar-sounding strategy. Even though Rothe said he didn't have enough capital to take over his family's farm following his father's death, he remains in the food industry. After Dartmouth, he went on to work at Attune Foods, a venture-backed, California-based natural foods company, which makes cereal, granola, and snacks.

Then, he became operations director at sustainable livestock company Niman Ranch, which includes a network of more than independent farms. Since taking over as sustainable food program manager for Stanford Dining Services, which serves 18, meals a day on campus, Rothe has worked to raise awareness about healthier eating practices and reducing waste. He can be spotted raising heirloom breeds of chickens and vegetables on the Stanford Community Farm and is also involved in food education in campus dining halls as a way to encourage students to seek out sustainable foods throughout their lives.
