The rising cost of farm machinery is creating challenges for both large and small-scale farmers.
Columnist and Winkler-area farmer Toban Dyck says because of this, many producers are starting to share equipment.
From what he's heard, Dyck says this approach has been working well.
"They have way more purchasing power, they can get the machines that they want," he explained.
Dyck says any original concerns with timelines and how the machinery would be shared has not been an issue. He adds with no equity and not much spending power, it's difficult for younger farmers to make a go of it.
