Viagra for women in india You have a tried and true business plan, viagra for women in india but there are many variables that affect it. Viagra for women in india Weather, viagra for women in india labor, viagra for women in india equipment and market forces that literally change each day buffet your attempts to stay afloat. Viagra for women in india And even though the demand is certain to be constant and the customer base — literally — is the world, viagra for women in india there’s no steady growth, viagra for women in india no predictability and no guarantees of success, viagra for women in india even from year to year.

Viagra for women in india In general, viagra for women in india unless you make at least $175, viagra for women in india000 in sales every year, viagra for women in india you don’t make a profit. Viagra for women in india In the industry you’ve chosen, viagra for women in india the data over nearly a century shows that the rate of return on your assets and equity will be negative except for the largest of your brethren.

Viagra for women in india You are a farmer.

Viagra for women in india The numbers

Viagra for women in india Paul Liebenstein was No. Viagra for women in india 1 on the list of Rice County farmers receiving subsidies from the federal government, viagra for women in india a fact that caught him entirely by surprise.

Viagra for women in india Liebenstein is the owner of Wolf Creek Dairy in Dundas and last year he received $86, viagra for women in india340 from the federal government, viagra for women in india according to USDA figures compiled by the Environmental Working Group, viagra for women in india an organization that has created a website to draw attention to federal farm subsidies and seeks reform to them.

Viagra for women in india Farm subsidies are federal dollars paid to farmers to do one of two things: fill the gap between the market price (if it falls below a certain level) and “parity” for their commodity, viagra for women in india or to make up the difference between the cost to farm a crop per acre and profitability. Viagra for women in india The federal government also subsidizes crop insurance for farmers and has other, viagra for women in india smaller subsidy programs, viagra for women in india such as for conservation.

Viagra for women in india EWG will tell you on their website that federal farm subsidies are not working, viagra for women in india that it costs American taxpayers astronomical sums of money — $35 billion since 1995 — and that, viagra for women in india most importantly, viagra for women in india the vast majority of the money falls into the hands of the wealthiest farmers and not family farms.

Viagra for women in india “Despite claims of reform, viagra for women in india many of the top subsidy recipients in this update are the same operations we’ve seen before, viagra for women in india” wrote EWG President Ken Cook in his national analysis of the USDA data. Viagra for women in india “Six of the top 10 recipients of commodity payments in 2009 were also in the top 20 in both 2007 and 2008. Viagra for women in india In contrast to the public fury over billion-dollar bailouts of Wall Street banks, viagra for women in india all 20 top recipients in 2009 received more than $1 million each, viagra for women in india several with multi-million-dollar hauls. Viagra for women in india And this is only one year’s worth of corporate handouts that have gone on for decades.”

Viagra for women in india In Rice County, viagra for women in india it would seem that Cook’s analysis holds true, viagra for women in india according to an analysis done by the Daily News. Viagra for women in india The county received $9.4 million in federal farm subsidies in 2009, viagra for women in india the latest year for which data is available, viagra for women in india and ranks 48th among the state’s 87 counties in how much it received. Viagra for women in india The state as a whole ranks fourth in the nation, viagra for women in india receiving nearly $900 million last year.

Viagra for women in india The top 10 percent of the 1, viagra for women in india176 farmers who received subsidies took in nearly half — 49 percent — of all the money Rice County received. Viagra for women in india The average subsidy payment for those in the top 10 percent was $33, viagra for women in india108, viagra for women in india or $9, viagra for women in india000 more than the median per capita income in the county, viagra for women in india according to the U.S. Viagra for women in india Census.

Viagra for women in india But the numbers are where the similarities to Cook’s analysis ends.

Viagra for women in india The reality

Viagra for women in india After the passage of the 2008 farm bill, viagra for women in india intended to equalize payments to all farmers big and small, viagra for women in india the media was quick to analyze and find fault with the “reformed” subsidies system. Viagra for women in india The Wall Street Journal, viagra for women in india New York Times and other large newspapers wrote in-depth stories on the law, viagra for women in india largely concluding it failed to get the subsidies into the hands of the country’s family farms. Viagra for women in india Before the bill was signed into law, viagra for women in india The Washington Post did a yearlong investigative project on subsidies with a title that said it all: “Harvesting Cash.”

Viagra for women in india The same was true earlier this month when EWG released its 2009 database. Viagra for women in india The headlines were the same: “Richest farms reap fattest subsidies.”

Viagra for women in india But in Rice County, viagra for women in india not everything is as the EWG or some media claim, viagra for women in india according to Daily News analysis. Viagra for women in india While it’s true that the top 10 percent of farmers received the most money, viagra for women in india comparing that list to property records shows those in the top 10 percent also happen to be farming the most acres or milking the largest herds.

Viagra for women in india In fact, viagra for women in india of the top 10 farms that received subsidies in 2009, viagra for women in india none are considered “corporate” farms. Viagra for women in india All are owned by either one or several related members of the same family.

Viagra for women in india “I wonder how many people would be surprised to know the huge risks we take and the incredible stresses of long hours, viagra for women in india huge debt loads, viagra for women in india weather worries and the like that farmers face throughout their careers, viagra for women in india” said Steve Albers. Viagra for women in india Albers farms crops in Dundas and last year was near the bottom half of those in the county receiving subsidy payments. Viagra for women in india He got $6, viagra for women in india515 in 2009, viagra for women in india according to USDA figures.

Viagra for women in india The Economic Research Service of the USDA puts out an annual report measuring the economic health of the family farm. Viagra for women in india It concludes what many farmers have known for years: Running a farm is the same as running a Main Street business, viagra for women in india except there are far more variables beyond the “business” owner’s control – like the weather or a natural disaster.

Viagra for women in india Or a country’s culture, viagra for women in india says Gene Kuntz.

Viagra for women in india Kuntz is a South Central College farm business management instructor. Viagra for women in india For years, viagra for women in india Kuntz said, viagra for women in india this country has had a “cheap food” policy. Viagra for women in india Rather than let market forces dictate, viagra for women in india the federal government since as far back as the beginning of the 20th century determined that it’s more important to pay subsidies to farmers to keep food prices down than to let free market forces reign.

Viagra for women in india “We make it (food) cheaper than any other country in the world, viagra for women in india” Kuntz said. Viagra for women in india “That, viagra for women in india in essence, viagra for women in india guarantees subsidies will be needed until we decide as a country to pay the same for food as other countries pay.”

Viagra for women in india EWG’s Cook says in his analysis that calling the subsidy payments a “bailout” is an insult to the term since the money doesn’t get to those who need it most — family farmers.

Viagra for women in india Not true, viagra for women in india says Kuntz. Viagra for women in india He says without subsidies, viagra for women in india what Cook thinks is happening now would actually be reality.

Viagra for women in india “Those payments keep family farms in existence, viagra for women in india” he said. Viagra for women in india “Without them the ripple effect would be the elimination of the smaller farm units and the growth of larger ones.”

Viagra for women in india On the back 40

Viagra for women in india Liebenstein’s $86, viagra for women in india000 federal subsidy went to pay part of his feed and labor bills. Viagra for women in india Wolf Creek Dairy has six full-time and six part-time employees.

Viagra for women in india But that same year overall he lost $300, viagra for women in india000. Viagra for women in india He ended up having to take out a loan against his assets in order make his payroll and other costs. Viagra for women in india His only hope for future profits is if he makes enough to cover his expenses and his new loan.

Viagra for women in india Albers, viagra for women in india who farms corn, viagra for women in india beans, viagra for women in india and cuts his own and his neighbors’ hay, viagra for women in india said there have been years where the subsidy he received was his only profit. Viagra for women in india Last year his subsidy came to about $17 per tillable acre. Viagra for women in india The average countywide was about $20 per acre in crop subsidies.

Viagra for women in india But to farm that same spread would likely cost $600 an acre, viagra for women in india Albers said.

Viagra for women in india “With the price of corn threatening now to go below $3, viagra for women in india it’s not hard to see how it’s going to take a really good crop to come out, viagra for women in india” Albers said.

Viagra for women in india The scale is what most people can’t relate to, viagra for women in india said Kent Politsch, viagra for women in india public affairs chief for the federal Farm Services Agency in Washington, viagra for women in india D.C.

Viagra for women in india “The farmer is a small businessman, viagra for women in india” Politsch said. Viagra for women in india “He operates his business on the scale of someone who owns three hardware stores. Viagra for women in india They both set up their business the same way — LLC — to get some tax breaks. Viagra for women in india But the farmer’s profit margin is far smaller than most.

Viagra for women in india “If you consider that businessman’s average income is about $40, viagra for women in india000 and he hears that a farmer got $600, viagra for women in india000 in payments, viagra for women in india it seems really lucrative. Viagra for women in india But what no one talks about is that the farmer likely spent $700, viagra for women in india000 to survive, viagra for women in india and most of that money he put into the local economy. Viagra for women in india No other local businessman is doing that.”

Viagra for women in india Ag studies have shown that each dairy cow generates about $5, viagra for women in india000 of impact on a local economy. Viagra for women in india Using that math, viagra for women in india Liebenstein’s herd alone pours $2 million into Rice County’s economy. Viagra for women in india He supports implement dealers, viagra for women in india bankers, viagra for women in india and seed, viagra for women in india fertilizer and chemical dealers. Viagra for women in india The families of his 12 employees depend on his farm in whole or in part for their income.

Viagra for women in india “There’s an old saying, viagra for women in india” Liebenstein said. Viagra for women in india “It says ‘give all the money to the farmers because they’ll spend it all.’”

Viagra for women in india There’s no question that some may have figured out how to abuse the federal farm subsidy system, viagra for women in india Politsch said. Viagra for women in india But for every one of those there are many others, viagra for women in india like those on Rice County’s list of top recipients who are one bad crop, viagra for women in india one low milk price year away from going broke.

Viagra for women in india “The last thing our economy needs to have happen is to have a farmer who’s producing the food we need to be lost, viagra for women in india” Politsch said. Viagra for women in india “We lose farmers, viagra for women in india we lose production, viagra for women in india prices go up. Viagra for women in india That’s when we lose Main Street.”
