Listen to Ag Analyst Kent Thiesse with an update on the Payment Protection Program (PPP) round one and two. Plus the latest on the revised Wildfire Hurricane Indemnity  Program (WHIP+) and the Top Up Payments for Pork Producers. Some of these programs are the result of the COVID-19 pandemic while others like WHIP and WHIP+ were around before the pandemic and all the shutdowns that began about a year ago.

KENT FARM NEWS FRIDAY 5-7

The Top Up Program payments for pork producers are the most in question as they are still being reviewed by the Biden Administration. I also talked with Kent about Farmfest as it was just announced there would be a Farmfest this year. Things could change between now and early August but right now it looks like we may have a normal summer. For many years Kent has organized all the forums in the forum building at Farmfest. I am sure there will be a lot of topics to choose from this year at Farmfest.

Not sure why, but people in Minnesota and Wisconsin have more than one of these 15 items.

If you walk through a house in Minnesota, Wisconsin, or Iowa, there is a very good chance that you will see some items more than once. Yes, we are talking about those duplicates that we have that we aren't always sure why...but we just have a tough time getting rid of the extras.
