I think this is the most modern barn, built recently, I suspect to take advantage of government subsidies for solar power - a whole roof of solar panels! But it never seems to be used much, although there have been a few horses in the field recently.
There are no dairy farms here; the soil is not good enough to support the crops and pasture that would be needed. At the other end of the spectrum, beef cattle take much less time commitment from the farmer. I suspect that on all of the cattle farms here the farmers have some sort of off-farm job and the beef cattle are more like a money-draining hobby!
As well a number of farms where there is still a barn standing are home to non-farm rural residents who just prefer to live in the country. And some may be home to retired farmers who have quit farming, but never moved off the farm. Often these are sad cases where maintenance goes downhill until the farmer reluctantly moves to town. Tomorrow the rest of the spectrum down to the missing barns.
