#ILLINOIS #FARMERS GRIM ABOUT ECONOMY

After four years of sliding farm income, the future looks much the same, said IFB’s Mike Doherty. “Even though we are still selling our exports overseas, and we’re capturing those sales, we have a declining share compared to South America, so it makes it more difficult for our farmers and it backs up our supply of corn and soybeans and we end up with lower domestic prices.” Ninety-two percent of IFB members recently surveyed said they expect their financial health to deteriorate or remain the same next year.
