I am selling my whole heard also but for different reasons

38 cows with calves, bulls and hay equipment

Average $12000 per year after expenses

12000
-2400 20% federal and state income tax
9600
-1800 15% social security tax
7800
-4275 interest I can get on the money invested in the operation
3525
-1333 What I can rent the farm for after paying property taxes
2192
2000 What it costs me for being to busy
192
divided by 300 hours/year= $.64 per hour

Why would anyone do this?
