Max Armstrong doesn’t recall a Friday night press conference with the Secretary of Agriculture, yet it happened. Sec. Sonny Perdue was announcing the details of a $19 billion aid package for agriculture. The program is $16 billion in payments and $3 billion commodity purchases. Max offers some perspective on the idea of government purchases of farm products.
Farm Progress America is a daily look at key issues in agriculture. It is produced and presented by Max Armstrong, veteran farm broadcaster and host of This Week in Agribusiness.
