    • Buy votes when the ag sector consists of LESS than 3% of the total votes(nationally) ???

      Of course, when CRP acres was allowed for livestock forage production, one sector of ag was upset because they had more supply than demand...

      meanwhile the bird hunters bit ched about the destroyed environment after grazing or forage production... (I could care less about those belly achers, until they pay taxes on the
      said property, it may be rented by the USDA, but the final say is still the owner!)

        • tisssssss time for this now----------------------------------------------------dave-------------------------------------------------------------------------
          Forecasters at the National Hurricane Center are monitoring an area disturbed weather that will move into the warm water of the Gulf of Mexico near Florida later this week. It now has a 50 percent chance of developing into a tropical system, and if it becomes a storm it would be named Tropical Storm Barry.
          In its 2 p.m. advisory, the hurricane center said Sunday, “A trough of low pressure over the southeastern United States is forecast to move southward toward the northeastern Gulf of Mexico, where a broad low pressure area will likely form in a few days. Thereafter, upper-level winds support gradual development, and a tropical depression could form late week while the low meanders near the northeastern Gulf of Mexico coast through Friday.”

          • LOL...been working on the combine most of the day, so ready to give some thought to this...

            I didn't agree or disagree that double dipping was wrong...I disagreed that it would by votes...

            remember the saying about looking a gift horse in the mouth?


            Now to that Hurrican Barry...LMAO, is it possible to be similar to the Barry 0 that left office a couple years ago?

I bet I can guess--------------------------------dave

                          Dave, since I live 3 times zones away, do you have a salt mine upstream of you? Even though you had catastrophic flooding, [and you have my complete sympathy] to get that high a % salt you couldn't blame fertilizer alone. Guess you'll have to do what my relatives did in the Dutch polders, plant oats.

                          • Well, around SE MN beans mostly look better than one might imagine with all the rain, but they are very small. Most corn looks good,but quite a few fields have short yellow areas and streaks. I've seen some fields of very small corn, mostly dairy farmers, but one non-dairy guy has a lot of very small corn. I'm guessing he took 85% crop insurance and thought that would work out and also thinking about Trump welfare. My corn looks good except for 4 or 5 % of zero population. I'm 70 years old and this is the wettest spring/early summer that I've ever seen. BTW, Canadian scientists from Edmonton looked at over 100,000 precipitation records from around the world since 1964. They noticed that there were more catastrophic rain events every decade. A 1 degree centigrade rise in temperature allows the atmosphere to hold 7% more water.

                            • Well here we just had another ground pounder. Only 6 tenths rain but 60-70mph winds. Lots of limbs down. Few corn fields I saw were really leaning. Don't know if it broke any off. On generator now. Power went out about 6 am. Situation here seems good for what 479 and other places are experiencing. But figured in my county there are alot of acres, several thousand I would guess, still under water from the lake north 10 miles. Around here about every field has from minimal to substantial drowned out spots which will amount to plenty of acres if totaled up. Not counting those spots, the rest of the early planted corn looks pretty decent and is tasseling. Stuff like mine planted a little later is variable in height. Beans look decent enough but all are later planted to one degree or another. 15 inch. haven't canopied yet. Can't get wheat harvest finished. 2 days left. 2 early planted fields were good. One later planted field that I did get harvested was below crop insurance guarantee. Don't expect rest to be any better. Would complain but realize we aren't near as bad as a lot of places not far away.
