Farming has never been a particularly easy or lucrative career.  And it’s getting harder.

In 2014, U.S. agricultural exports to China totaled $24 billion. Last year, they were down to $9.1 billion, and for the first half of this year, the figure was $1.3 billion.

Meanwhile, farm bankruptcies are up 13 percent over last year.
