A Hie Market is. Down today a wednesday Bobb said. A was soon As the Market opened it fell its simply a fact that nothing is Corn dropped 10 cents soybeans fell 30 cents and wheat was Down 20 cents. That is the maximum amount those commodities Are allowed to drop m one Day explained Joseph Urban a retired Batavia far Mer a. A a it a a darn shame the Farmer Lias to be the one who. Taf Cree the Brunt of this thing11 the embargo Urban said. A Market paces Aren t up to what they should be anyhow and this will just make it worse. A most Farmers have operating Loans on equipment or supplies and those notes Are coming due now so its a particularly bad time for them. A he added. The Best course of action for Farmers in Urban s opinion is not to panic and to hold on to their stored crops for a while a i feel for the Farmers.
