The Washington Post quoted Dale Moore, AFBF executive vice president, in an article about the current state of the farm economy.

“While America’s farmers and ranchers are grateful for the administration’s agriculture assistance package, it only begins to relieve the great difficulty the agriculture industry is currently facing, ranging from extreme weather conditions to depressed markets,” Moore told the Post.

“Each sector of the farming and ranching industry has its own assets and challenges, but it appears ‘great’ may be an overstatement,” wrote reporter Laura Reiley, referring to a tweet from President Donald Trump (“Farmers are starting to do great again, after 15 years of a downward spiral. The 16 Billion Dollar China ‘replacement’ money didn’t exactly hurt!”).
