Kudos to "Fernwood" for a provocative opinion piece on the rural economy in 2011.
Grain farmers in areas not affected by negative weather events should have a banner year. If you can't make good money with $5-6 corn and $12+ beans you had better find another profession. The news is not so good for dairy farmers. At least in my area smaller dairy farmers continue to struggle. Tobacco farmers also continue to see deteriorating profits."
