I am sorry for these people. I am sorry for the farmer, but people seem to have forgotten the small farms who may just have a small operation with a few head of livestock and no crops. Fences have been washed out, and equipment ruined. Who helps the small farmer with that? The FSA and USDA just seem to care for the big guys.

Teresa, you have hit upon that particular problem. I am faceing that myself. My small farm, and it is small, is not significant enough to make a difference to them. I am on my own, just like I was when I started putting up fencing and buying my animals. Now, I have to buy more fence to replace what was washed away, and the fence posts, connectors, electric fencing, the fence chargers. It is all back on me again. Unless I want to take out a loan.... which I cannot afford to do, since I lost my 2 best vehicles. Now, my vehicles come first, because without my job, the fencing wont matter. I only lost 1 animal to the floods, luckily. But the fencing and vehicles hurt more than the house did. With the house, it was mostly STUFF, not necessities. Fencing and vehicles are a necessity.
