“There’s a lot of B.S. in the world, so you’ll get a lot of that,” said Bruce Buchanan, who farms 6,000 acres with his son, Allen, in Benton and Warren counties. “So, you’ll get a lot of that when we get together to talk, too. … But we know for a fact that, for the ag economy, income is down and prices are down. What this is going to do for that, we don’t know and you don’t know, for sure. But we felt it was a pretty impactful thing for our president to do.”
What they settled on – “talking freely over a cup of coffee,” Buchanan said – was a greeting carefully harvested into 60 acres of drying corn near Boswell.
“Thanks Mr. Trump for E15.”
