Regrouping to meet increased demand as well as tackling agricultural policy development will be among this year’s top priorities Ontario’s general farm organizations predict


Were are the wise farm leaders
The Feds led by King Harper will never agree to enter RMP as now written.

All the good things that have happened to Ontario farmers , the consensus today is that good times don't last.We will see $4 corn before we see $8 corn. China hold hugh debt of USA and when China's economic bubble burst's, it will take commodity markets to unprofitable levels for high leveraged farmers.

ECU inflation of the US dollar, will kill commodity prices for export and those Ontario farmers paying $10-15,000 per A for farms and $300 per acte cash rent will need debt review boards. WHO IS GOING TO ABSORB that LOSE?

In 1980 when farmers exhausted their asset values with no more upside potential these producers over-leveraged themselves betting that inflation and good times would never end . The farm leaders of that day are a mirror reflection of todays leaders. Stupid is not fixing itself.
Ontario Farm debt is at an all time high.
