1. Satisfaction

1. Satisfaction

"Without farmers, the whole world would be in a very sticky situation. To be part of that is very satisfying. I've seen cattle, sheep and pigs born in my life - and I still get a 'buzz' from leaning on a gate and watching a new life come into the world."

8. Legacy

8. Legacy

"Knowing your place in history. The people who have done exactly the same as me on the farm - blood, sweat and tears."

9. Animals

9. Animals

"It's the animals. Knowing 'that cow' will be the next to calf because of the way she looked at me last night. Being the first person in the world to see those twin lambs, just as you were the first to see their mother and grandmother."

 

- Becs (Farming Forum)

10. And many, many more...

10. And many, many more...

"It's impossible to give just one answer; I came back to farming after a long time away, and thought a lot about it beforehand.
