What do farmers want?

So I keep hearing from the ag media that farmers are upset, or at least disappointed that the current administration isnt giving them enough attention.  As in "Trump needs to remember who put him into office"  (Please, my point is about agriculture, not the President)..But wait a minute...  Most farmers who voted for this president profess to want the government to stay out of their business.  So which is it?  Or maybe its the ag media and commodity organization lobbyists whose jobs hinge on government involvement that are afraid of being ignored.  Is it time to "fire" the farm organizations?  Are they out of touch with what farmers really want?  Or is "get the government out of ag" just lip service? I'd love to hear your thoughts  let's keep it civil, please.
