The already bleak picture for United States agriculture is only getting bleaker as 2016 continues. Farmers are now openly talking about this year's planting as an exercise in minimizing their losses instead of profit seeking with agricultural commodity prices in the toilet. The surplus of agricultural products is so great that prices remain depressed even with minimal product entering the market from storage. The consumption of products derived from staple crops is substantially increasing as evidenced by mayo gendered obeasts becoming a substantial political bloc trending to become the majority of the population, yet even the transmayo can not accelerate their consumption enough to adequately stimulate demand. Secondary effects of the agricultural industry's malaise are starting to be felt as manufacturers of heavy equipment are suffering the double whammy of slumping farms and an agonal energy industry. Sorry for your loss.
