They were all too happy to vote for him when they thought he was going to hurt OTHERS.


Basically, they’re buying from everyone else but us (soybeans are our 2nd largest crop, China was our #1 buyer)

1. That's going to hurt.

I have wondered if trump is trying to drive the small farmers out of business. Bankrupt them. Make them sell out to big agribusiness.

6. There are no real small farmers showing beans.

Because small row crop farms do not make sense.

But most most ‘corporate’ farms are really family farms. They incorporate for the same reason your locally owned hardware does. They are not stupid.

If the go out of business their neighbors will buy their land and add it to their family owned corporate farm.
