This should be good for the local farmers around here since most of the traditional farms here seem to have health corn and soy bean crops in the fields.

We have such a huge hay & grain shortage I just can’t afford the soon to be 8-10$ a bail. There are small hoppy farmers and homesteaders losing everything around here. Every farmer I talk to only got 1st crop of hay & that was half the yield it should have been. I foresee many food shortages in our area not to machine the livestock loss.
