farming is a small business. No other small businesses get this. If the grocery store fails, it fails. Its profit isnt guaranteed by the government.Grain prices are at an all time high. Those at the top of this list dont need $$ to farm. How can the farmer fail? if its a drought, he has crop insurance that pays off. If prices go low, the governement chips in money. No one has to own 3 combines...7 semis...and all that..you choose to do all of that.

no Timmy farming is not a small business it is that largest and most important business there is. If the farmers fail we go hungary. The farmers are a huge part of what keeps this great nation a float. I would like to see you try to live without them.

Wow thank you. How do they get this money? I mean for what? Set aside land? Making so much crop? Not making so much crop? For what does our goverment give this money for?

I don't understand either Hungry for Answers...what is this money for? Have they always gotten this money or is this something new? I am ashamed to say, I don't know much about farming. Never really thought about it before. I'm not putting anyone down for it because I really don't understand it. I am really curious now tho.

It's pretty simple. The Government suppresses some food and other crop prices at market. Cotton is the #1 subsidized crop. This keeps your food cost low (compaired to the rest of the world). They provide the farmers with subsidies to make up for the lost income. They in turn keep farming and YOU keep eating. Sounds like a win/win to me.

And everyone please watch the poision these Teabaggers spout. Often they have no idea what they are complaining about, and will be the ruin of our country.

I agree with you. I am not putting the farmers down they grow the food we eat. I would just like to know more. Farmers are great hard working people.
