What farmer is he is talking about who made 'lots' of money? The 'regular' farmer struggle every day to make ends meet. When you are talking about their land values going up - could end their farming career because they can no longer pay their property taxes and lose their land. Its those top 15% not the small guy. Farming and ranching from experience and heritage (and they were good managers) that big money was never in the picture. Net worth is one thing - looks good on paper, but none of it you can get a hold of - can't sell the land (which is the net worth), and have no money, but the farmer is being demonized here for putting food on all your tables - not all take subsidies! And most don't want the gov subsidies, they want to prod
