government checks coming end of September- first of October.

 

That can not be true.

Your dear leader and his supporters would never allow socialism like that.

Re: I went to Farm Fest yesterday

Some of the cheaper machine sheds probably cut corners on steel, lumber and paint by sourcing it from foreign countries, so their steel price would go up 25% and they`ll milk it up 40% with that excuse.   But Morton Buildings already use US materials ...and they`ve been a little higher price ...but you don`t see hail damage, wind damage snow load damage.   On other brands in a heavy snow event, roofs cave in, tin blows off, the paint fades (I won`t mention them by name).   You get what you pay for, I figured, I didn`t want to make payments on a building with a busted rafter and faded paint before it`s paid for and both my Mortons are like new, one was put up in 1996 and one in 2012.

Re: I went to Farm Fest yesterday

I remember WELL the statement from a cooperative manager, at the annual share holders meeting, explaining why they were making a

few changes in how they would be pricing and selling grain...BECAUSE of prices  so volatile.

 

This was 2.5 years ago, before any "trade war" tariff action...

That's what I've talked about previously.  People raising crops in areas and on soil that just adds to the surplus but isn't a viable living.  Just destroying the markets for areas that are perfect for growing crops.

I've been through 2 droughts, a flood, n-cytoplasm corn and herbicide carry over.  In 88.

Also been through Jimmy Carter embargo.

Why do people assume I’m talking to them instead of the original poster? Mobile page puts all comments in a straight line.

Re: I went to Farm Fest yesterday

And btw, 60 percent of you would have went bust in the eighties without the program and without the disaster relief that began in 1988. Once the farm program was truly a “food security act”. If we don’t have a country if we don’t have steel we sure don’t have a country without food. We have fought a few wars over oil because production is in too few hands. It is a National Security issue to combat consolidation. Same reason European nations won’t and shouldn’t stop subsidies or open free trade on Ag products. They can’t compete with a country whose total Ag production is on a scale many times larger and maintaining an ability to produce a minimum amount of food domestically is paramount
