U.S. Formally Announces $16 Billion for Agriculture support: 

 

Good news for American agriculture the US government on Thursday formally announced an aid package to farmers worth $16 billion. This will help to compensate them for what they said was unfair retaliatory measures in its trade war with China.

The US undersecretary for farm production and conservation Bill Northey said the government will not give any monetary figure. We want to make sure farmers are “planting for the market” and that “folks have complete flexibility during this challenging planting season”.

This was to put down rumors of soybean producers getting $2 per bushel price support.

 

Leading into Memorial weekend I want to share one of my favorite presidential quotes from Missouri’s own Harry S Truman

 

America was not built on fear. America was built on courage, on imagination and an unbeatable determination to do the job at hand.”
