    Nah Percy, KH ain't been fishing since 1964. Doubt if I will take the time now. But I've had some good offers to get together for a few tall cold ones while wetting a line.
    Too bad its cheaper to go to a tavern and have a good fish fry. Wisconsin known for Friday Fishfrys almost as much as having great cheese curds.

    i know heifers taste great, even steins! But dairy farmers from the midwest seem to raise everything or at least we do. Some cows are bred angus

    Eat the BEST, sell the rest

      Jim Dicktrell put out an article yesterday and this morning was on Ag Talk... He said he ran the numbers for a 2 million lb. farm. @ the $8 coverage @ today's prices. That farm would receive almost $11000 of indemnity payments.... That would pay a few bills around here...

          Sorry, Rafe, unless I can use these counterfeit bills, its still a DOA deal. A fellow dairyman told me he was advised to sign up cuz he could get a $1,000 back on his $100 fee. I asked him last weekend how that was possible, and he said he was lied to.This is just political smoke and mirrors.

            I don't understand what your friend was told, or who told him that. If you only sighed up with the $100 fee, you will get nothing. The $100 is for 4 dollar margin, this hasn't changed... What has changed is the price of the premiums, the way the feed costs are calculated (monthly as apposed to by monthly) and they made sign up retroactive to january... The $8 coverage is what I am talking about. They are telling you what they will pay out the first three months, which is almost 3 times the premium, before you sign up... It's kind of like buying wind insurance after the tornado has gone through. In my case the premium was a little more than $1500. I will be receiving over $5000... They also changed the top amount of milk you can cover from 4 million pounds to 5 million...

                  I'M ON!! Go read the sidebar about Canada's 270% tariff, and you'll soon realize that its all one way. Canadas quota is limited by how much butterfat you produce, which they are short of, so they import fat. That leaves an excess of skimmilk, which their local cheese plants can't use, cuz its priced off of $30cwt milk.. its too pricey. Then their cheese makers set up shop down in USA. When the cheapest powder in the WORLD is coming out of Canada, then you qualify as a dumping nation.Trump doesn't like that!! Their cheaper slaughter cows force the price of mine down,[they come past me by the potload to be slaughtered here,] + they drive up the cost of our springers, and alfalfa hay, which go north without any duty. Free trade? my foot!

                    Canada imports MORE dairy from the US than they export to the US. They bring the cull cattle to US for our companies to value add which means US jobs.. Canada takes US dairy heifers and alfalfa with NO duty taxes. What was the problem ? Sounds like trade to me. If you are a dairyman wouldn't you have more than enough heifers ?

                      BTW - Canada buys more steel and aluminum from the US than they sell to the US. So when "Private Bone spurs" yaps about a trade embargo against Canada steel and aluminum it shows how retarded the guy really is.

                        Ron, you have to realize that any dairy product that is sold in USA that is coming out of Canada HAS to be subsidized, or it couldn't compete here. If you want free trade, then you and I should be allowed to sell our milk up there. You see how well that worked in your home state...100 dairies were cut off last year. When you go toward a socialistic system, as Canada is, the number of 'parts' that are sacrificed to maintain/enhance other parts will continue to grow. Do you realize that emergency rooms are frequently closed on weekends up there? The healthcare is "free", but its not available!! What should have you and I excited is the fact that our President actually cares about 40,000 dairymen enough to go to bat for us!!

                          ronny reminded me of this already posted tid bit A U.S. Marine enters the Catholic Church confessional booth in Manitowish Waters, WI .



                          He says, "Bless me, Father, for I have sinned. Last night, I beat the ever living crap out of a flag burning, cop hating, anti-Trump protester."



                          The priest says, "My son, I am here to forgive your sins, not to discuss your community service."

                              Don't suppose there are so many producers going to the offices, the "workers" can't get everything done...so they are giving the producers more time...
