Me too!

Well, not really.  I did my last farm return back in 1932, but I just wanted to make you feel better.  But for what it's worth, maybe the IRS figures it's too easy to cheat to file a schedule C but filing a schedule F would mean that someone would have had to go out and buy a cow or a tractor or something like that so the odds are too low for someone to cheat.

As long as they own either a tractor or a cow, they qualify.  Owning a chicken doesn't qualify but I believe if you own two chickens you are official.  🚜 🐄 🐔🐔

Horses are the livestock of choice. I'm in horse and buggy country.   There was a time when deer was the all the craze.    Not tractors...most churches won't allow but you can have a skidsteer.

Well, I guess a skidsteer does look and act a lot like a horse 😯
