With grain prices remaining stagnant and input prices always edging higher, the balance sheet might seem bleak for some no-tillers. But before you allow frustration to get the better of you, Jan Layman suggests thinking creatively about your business and putting your best skills to use to maximize your income.
In this episode of the No-Till Farmer podcast, brought to you by Yetter Manufacturing, we are joined by longtime no-tiller Jan Layman, who shares the economic payoffs he’s gained as a result of diversifying the operations on his 4,800-acre Kenton, Ohio, farm.
He discusses his custom excavation, tiling, and fertilizer application business; how he makes extra cash and gets the inside scoop on other local opportunities through his work as an auctioneer; how he really started making money when he built a grain setup and quit hauling out of the field, and more.
