FARMERS REPORT THEIR LEAST FAVORITE CHILDHOOD CHORES


By Jenna Hoffman, AgWeb.com

It's no secret owning a farm is more than a full-time job. In my experience, when there are young kids on the operation, elders can put some of the most grueling farm chores on the "young and able-bodied" to-do list.

Whatever your rose and thorn are when it comes to childhood farm chores, your least favorite task likely relates to chopping weeds in bean fields or picking up rocks.

That's according to our recent AgWeb.com poll that asked: What is one childhood farm chore you do NOT miss?

Here are the top results from more than 1,250 votes:

Chopping weeds in soybean fields: 25%

Picking up rocks: 20%

Hauling in square straw/hay bales: 16%

Lower-ranking chores might surprise you:

Cleaning grain bins: 8%

Weeding the family garden: 7%

Fixing fence: 5%

Power washing the barn: 3%
