countercyclicals?

[ Edited ]

Hadn't even thought about it.

 

Anybody much in a position to get any payments as prices stay down through year end?

Re: countercyclicals?

I thought countercyclical pmts went out with the old farm bill?  and were replaced by ARC/PLC.  Am I missing something?  FWIW, most of my wheat and sorghum base is in PLC, so that should be setting up pretty well.  I don't know about ARC

Yes, countercyclicals just the generic term for those programs.

Re: countercyclicals?

The first year the ARC payment was "good" at $80 minus this minus that and then 85% is your share...but okay whatever, not enough to pay my seed bill, but it`s money.  Last year it was about $15 or $20 and now this year they project it to be $40...so, it`s not going to make or break anyone  Smiley Indifferent
