Ralph lives on the principle, Live as if you'll die tomorrow, farm as if you'll live forever. Dayton says for the first time in his farming career he is able to sit down with an agronomist and develop a long-term strategy. Dayton says that he doesn't want to allow just for a single year what he needs to put out for the good of the crop, instead he wants to develop a strategy for 5, 10, 15 or 20 years into the future.
