I was told yesterday that Pilgrim's Pride will be closing their doors again. Does anyone know if this is true or not? It directly affects my family and myself and I'm praying it's not true.
NOOO

If it directly effected you then you would know thats totally not true. My husband is a chicken farmer and there is no such. He is getting his second batch of birds at the end of this month.

I love seeing all the poor chicken farmers buying their kids new cars and trucks with the money from Obama. Wonder if they'll vote for him next time? No better than the welfare mamas they turn their noses up to. Greedy bunch of hypocrites.

Maybe if you went for so long with out any source of money, when you finally got some you would buy your kids nice things too. And honey let me tell ya...$100,000 don't got far.... When your chicken houses sit for a long time without use, several thousand go to fix things that have to be upgraded... And one chicken house cost $250,000 to build. JUST ONE. So why don't you go spend a little while being a chicken farmer and let me know how that $100,000 would help you! And just because your miserable don't mean everyone else has to be! And read the guidlines on welfare... You gotta have a job to get it too! And Obama wasn't the one who decided on the money! So read up on that!

Reality is right. Chicken farmers chose to be chicken farmers. When the work vanished, they could find other work or do something besides sit on their asses and wait for government money to start over. But oh no, they are all white and rich (or act like it) and spend the money on buying their kids camaros and $50000 pickups. Makes sense to me. Defend it all you want, but it's not right. And these are the first kind of people who talk bad about welfare mamas and white trash people. They are no better, they just have nicer vehicles that the government bought them. And no I'm not jealous, I earn my pay and buy my own shit. I don't need a bailout from the government to do it for me.

We are talking about the ones who are sorry and live off the government money but claim to be hardworking rich folks. There are several in Atkinson County. Kids go to CCA, everyone drives new cars, fine jewelry, but no chickens in the house. Thank goodness that money came before the chickens. We wouldn't want Little Sally feeling less than when she drives to private school in that new car. LOL

For the honest hardworking farmers, this isn't about you.

HMMM

Well honey I can promise you, no one in my house drives a new vehicle and lets not forget I'm the farmers wife and I live in a double wide trailor! And I still work, and no my child don't go to CCA. Ambrose is just fine with us. My husband works from day light to dark, sometimes til 2 and 3 in the morning to provide for his family, and FYI farmers that grow hay ususally grow it to feed livestock... if you knew anything about farming you would know these things. It cost money to feed cows, and once you sell them, their gone! I cant stand people who act like this... And more power to a woman with welfare tryin to take care of her family!

Bless your heart! Sweety, you have stumbled upon a South Georgia gossip fest. No one down here can help you, darlin'

You need to find some Yankee chicken farmers to help you out, Sugar!
AMEN

i agree, when i got laid off from my job,i still had a house payment, car payment, and all the other bills, and all i got from the government was 330 a week, the government didn't care if i lost everything. so where is our 100,00? believe me i know a lot of those farmers and they should not be treated any better than all of us that was on unemployment. they should have put back some of those checks every 6 to 8 weeks.

Well I can tell all of you who are worried about other people's business. Yes, we are chicken farmers. Yes we did get out and have other jobs while we were out of chickens. We still had bills coming in. The money we got did help. It helped to catch up on bills we were behind on for the past 2 years. A few of the farmers got out and worked hard for 2 years to put food on the tables. Yes some did sit around but not all. When your bills are based around your income and all of a sudden that income is not decreased but GONE, it is hard. What I don't understand is why it is anyones business what someone else and their family drives, where they go to school, etc. Just be glad the company is back up and running. I know my family are I are. We thank God everyday for giving us chickens again. The chicken company is not only helping farmers but the communities as a whole. Several businesses have suffered over the past 2 years because of this. Just be glad it's back and quit finding things to complain about.

Thank you! I'm glad someone out there understands.... Farm equipment cost a whole lot more than a light bill ever did... tractor payments, diesal, light bills, car payments, labor fee's, land taxes, feed cost, seed, fertilizer, tires, tractor parts, equipment repairs, weed killer, food, house payments, gas, insurance for farms and homes and cars, i can go on forever... so average that up per month and see if you could do it.... Thank god for that $100,000!
