I just got back from turkey hunting on a friend's ranch where in addition to having excellent deer and turkey hunting, he raises cattle and grows wheat. He told us of a new government program that will pay him $50,000 per year for five years. All he has to do is provide a concrete ramp out of all of his metal stock tanks so that when critters fall in they will have a way out and not drown. He wasn't exactly sure of the formula that developed the $50M but it had to do with the number of acres, number of tanks, etc.. Oh, and this is in addition to the $32 per acre per year for CRP. All he has to do there is not grow anything, cut down any cedar trees and I don't think he can graze cattle on it.
Just can't find any areas to cut spending regards,
