Wayne Counts, a Moffat County wheat farmer, said there are a handful of farmers in the county left willing to try to make a living in farming. “There is definitely a reason there are only a few of us left,” he said. Counts said the economics of farming and ranching in the area are often difficult. But, despite the struggles he and many other farmers and ranchers may go through in a year, he loves the profession he grew up with, he said.
