Monkeys got loose again

This time they got into the typewriter room, and
One of them belt out this little article

American farmers need to tighten belt to compete
With Latin American farmers.

I'll admit I didn't read it....but I think the title says it
All.

First...most have been tighten...notice how many dealers have went out of business, or the elimination
Of elevators and chem/fert local offices...or the decline of rural towns

Just what do they suggest cutting ? Food, healthcare ??
Just so you can afford $65 bag soybean seed, $300 plus corn seed, 300 sunflower seed, or round up alfalfa seed $8 a pound.
Same with chemicals and fertilizer.

You want to compete with a bunch that can get
Two crops a year, good moisture, land prices half,
Lower labor, food, healthcare costs, and funny thing
Their seed and chemicals are lower.

If you think you can beat that....

I think we need to put you in with the monkeys.
