HOW TO SURVIVE AND THRIVE IN FARMING Part 1
Unless you know and apply some basic principles, you cannot survive and thrive in any business including farming. There is no point going into any business if we cannot do what it takes to survive and thrive in it.
Here are the 8 basic ways to survive and thrive in farming business no matter what!
1. Develop the passion.
Only passion can take you far into any business including farming. Without having the passion, you will not last in farming. Passion is the energy that will drive you to success no matter the difficulty you face. Passion is what will bring you back to farming even when you lose your chickens to industry disasters and the likes.
2. Be committed to continuous learning.
You will not go far in farming without wisdom, knowledge and understanding. Many farmers are quick to pack it up because of ignorance which they refuse to defeat through wisdom, knowledge and understanding.
3. Take it that problems will come.
No matter how good you may be, problems will still visit you on the farm. The difference is that great farmers usually turn their problems to opportunities for growth and more profits. Egg prices will go down while feed prices go up while only the middlemen benefit. Find a way to rise up after every fall. Find a market far from your place .Tough times never last but tough people do.
4. Apply sound business principles.
You must know that farming is a business to succeed in it. A farmer should be grounded in sound business principles. Understand the market dynamics, obey the laws of demand and supply, practise market timing and so on…
