China’s decision to cut off purchasing American agricultural products could make an already bad situation even worse.
“We’re going to have way less of a demand, way oversupplied. That’s going to drive these market prices potentially further down than they already are. That’s a potential more of a crisis for farmers," said Malena Wheeler, the manager of the Woodford County Farm Bureau.
Wheeler said Woodford County farmers are telling her they’re concerned and would much rather be able to sell their products on the market than continue to receive government aid.
