Re: The Dust Bowl and the Government

Guys, this conversation has really been fun. Great to hear so many fascinating stories and great insights. Makes me wonder something else: relating to the experiences you've heard about and all the stories you've heard from family, neighbors and others, what single piece of advice would you all offer a farmer -- young, beginning or otherwise -- to avoid laying the groundwork for another potential Dust Bowl? Seems to be an awful lot of ideas -- from tillage to overall agricultural philosophies -- that could have a big influence. Frankly, I'm just fascinated by this whole topic. Like I said, this conversation has really been fascinating to me.
