No kidding Randy. In most cases I can just shake my head and forget it. This is so blatent that I really want to send an informative letter to editor of our local paper. The slant She put on the subsidies is like every farmer in the US is a FAT CAT that is being supported by the taxpayers!

With the price of inputs,that'll never happen. As soon as somebody thinks we made a dollar,there's two people there trying to take a dollar and a half away from us.
Reminds me of that episode of Green Acres when they found out Oliver made a profit of something like $16 and some odd cents. Everybody was trying to hit him up for just that amount.

Has to be. Seed corn alone this year is gonna set you back $100 an acre. If you're renting ground and paying high rent,that's gonna be the big variable.

A neighbor woman passed away the other day. I can't help remembering being in the bank with her years ago,both of us waiting to see the loan officer. She was saying then that they were claiming all things considered,it was going to cost $100 an acre to grow corn that year. Made me feel sick to my stomach just thinking about it. Ah,the good old days.
