At this time last year, 88 percent of Illinois’ corn crop was in the ground. This year, just seven percent is.

USDA says Manda Packing meats sent to 13 states, including Missouri and Illinois, may contain harmful bacteria.

Other animals in exhibit were stealing victim’s food.
The harvest advanced from 80 to 87 percent, as farmers switched to soybeans or were kept out of the fields by rain.
Statewide, topsoil moisture is now 44 percent adequate and 4 percent surplus – not enough to help this year’s corn and soybeans, but good news for next year.
Conveniently-timed for Obama’s reelection, the Hispanic and Women Farmers and Ranchers Claims Resolution program began September 24, 2012 – just a month-and-a-half before the election. Apparently the Obama administration did not care about this alleged injustice to females and Hispanics any time in the past three-and-a-half years. It just happened to be thought about and addressed now – just before voters pull the lever.
In recent decades, the government has taken to feeding needy children to combat the negativity of trying to learn while being hungry. Now, with new Obama administration regulations on school lunches, we have a government that is causing hunger.
USDA crop statistician Brad Schwab says the damage to the corn was done weeks ago, and even now soybeans probably won’t benefit from rain.
