  Speaking of farmer welfare, and possiblity of no payments, has anyone else not received their 2017 ARC/PLC payment and been told by the local FSA office there is no money and they don't know when there will be. I am in southwest Georgia, still putting things back together after Michael and that money sure would come in handy.

  I think we will get something probably the $.82 . Sonny is in a bad spot on this. This could be January before we see anything. The farm sector from the farmer to the retailer is in trouble. There fore I think the Trump administration hand will be forced with all the talk of a recession setting in by the end of 2019.

  Some idiots in MN just ran a 1990 4455 up over $90,000.00 Obviously they don't need the extra tariff subsidy. Yet I'll bet they are holding their hands out, crying poverty, and begging for it. We in Ag are our own worst enemies.
