This is probably about the most despicable post I've seen on this board for quite a while. This topic pops up on nearly every ag forum from garden tractors to big time operators of the largest size.
That site reports sooooooo much more than it represents in it's format. After a severe flood, we were approached by the US government to repair some field damage on 3 contiguous farms from a stream that went out of it's banks and destroyed several fields. This had NOTHING to do with any crops, crop insurance, or subsidy for crop related losses. Just erosion repair. No one in the group had applied for any relief of any kind but the chain of communication in the US government filtered down to our names.
We did not have the equipment or resources to do the work and we told them so. They asked us to oversee the contracting of the work and it was all cleared through USDA and paid directly to the contractor. Not one red cent came to us.
We showed up for years as having received in excess of one hundred thousand dollars on that site.
This is a constant source of misinformation that's commonly used by smaller, less productive operators, quite often hobby farmers who can't make a buck in the best markets to justify their hatred for larger more professional and productive neighbors.
It's usually and I suspect in this case as well, pure outright envy.
Know what you're reading before you start spouting off about the misinformation on that site.
