Your telling me in this rare time of very good grain prices, you MIGHT make a small profit without subsidy, but not enough to put any new efficient iron on the place ??. When prices are low again like they historically are, your gonna be in trouble when things wear out, right ?
The farmers in this country, 1% of the population,grow enough food to feed 350 million non farmers, the other 99%,plus export enough to feed another 150 million overseas,which by the way, is one of the few things this country still exports. And we do it at a price so low that Americans spend less than 20% of income on food, so they have the other 80% to pump back into the economy.to keep the country running.
Those piddling little farm subsidies keep the farm sector healthy enough, with good modern equippment, to keep producing that cheap stable supply of food America loves so much but does not appreciate. The big farmers get 90% of the subsidy, well yeah, they produce 90% of the food too. Look it up. Dumb as politicians are, their smart enough to realize how much that piddling litte subsidy program brings to this country. None of this would be possible if every farmer was forced to work 80 acres with a 20-50 year old trucks and little 50-70 year old tractors. The smallest farm that will pay a family a living income in my area, even with the little subsidy perks, is 3-4,000 acres, with many of the really successful farms farming 10,000 acres with modern equipment.
Just that the 99% non farming population are so far removed from what feeds this country and a good part of the world, that they have no clue what a good deal they are getting. And fools with full fat bellys on this site, call real farmers evil. That is evil.:(
