    You do realize that some parts of the state are different than others, right?

    Are you trying to imply that farmers who haven't planted all of their ground yet have only themselves to blame?
    No matter how cynical you become, it's never enough to keep up.

    A week ago I was listening to an interview of Tim Ryan who said that farmers were not planting because of Donald Trump and the Chinese tariffs. The wet weather never came up.

    I'm sure this is true as well. As with most things, there is rarely ever a single cause.

    Maybe that's true.

    Or maybe Tim Ryan is ignorant as well.

    That, or ya know, the fact that he was a PolySci major in college, went to law school, and has now been in public office since he attained the ripe old age of 29...


    He MIGHT not be a qualified observer, even if he has lots of words.

    Different crop or just let it go to hay?


    The soybean market ain't that hot right now, so that's not a great option.

    Ouch.

    Combine that with import tariffs, and lack of exports due to tariffs... a dollar ain't gonna go as far.

Farming sure has changed in the last 20 yrs. or so.
    Watched my neighbors expand and change, take on debt, risk and stress that canít be absorbed by one generation and I ask myself why? Yet as a now part time farmer I would jump at the chance to expand and very envious of what they have. Often wonder how they view me?
    They probably view you as the guy who will buy their farm at the auction when they go bust.

    If they take prevent plant corn there is a restriction on what can be planted as a cover crop, soybeans are a no. Most guys Iíve talked to that have the ability to make hay or have cattle are leaning towards oats, it canít be harvested till after November 1. But most farmers no longer have cattle and/or hay equipment, going to be a small percentage that can take advantage of that.

    And a great situation for others. This is farming. Generally, there is no such thing a steady and predictable.
