Farmers Struggling In Rigged Markets…Trade Deal Unlikely, Won't Help | Brian Ochsner



Farmer & Marketing Strategist Brian Ochsner sat down with Silver Doctors on Thursday for a robust discussion on farming in America. How are U.S. farmers doing in the face of a trade war, highly financialized markets and a loss of competitiveness in the global marketplace?

Some of the topics in today’s discussion include:

– Impact of Trade War on Farmers
– Is the Trump Administration’s “Market Facilitation Program” (a.k.a.
bail-out) helping U.S. Farmers?
– Does Brian see food price inflation coming down the pike?
– What kind of impact does an over-regulated sector of the U.S.
economy, combined with a highly financialized Wall Street, have
on American Farmers?

For robust discussion on all of those topics and a whole lot more, tune-in to today’s interview in its entirety!

Thanks for the video. But it seems to be missing the big picture. Crops have failed all over the world in 2019. Farmers are going bankrupt, thousands a day, left and right, N. America, Europe, Aus. The solar minimum has NASA expecting next year to be worse, and it looks like a "grand" solar minimum could make things very bad for 30 years. If you think "It can't be that serious!" go see Ice Age Farmer, Adapt 2030, Yanasa Ama Ranch and a few other youtube channels. We are going to lose billions of people in the coming decades.

Grand Solar Minimum! Agriculture will be going offline in many regions of the world over the next decade. Food will be the most important thing going forward. Victory garden time again children!🥦🥒🥕🥔🐇🐓

Currently the Western World seems to be about three or four really bad growing seasons away from real food problems. We've had one. This just in time market doctrine is all well and good but hungry people pull down empires. Ask the Chinese. Don't bank on the military holding the official line. They've got family too.What I'd like to know is why don't some of those billions of dollars being created every week go to building up a large strategic reserve of grains and meat. You know, kind of like China has done and is doing in preparation for some… Read more »

I doubt if you can substitute cauliflower for wheat. It's not cauliflour.

What would be amazing is if the House would sign the USMCA. We don't have to depend upon China to make it in the world.

exactly ! why are we growing some much corn and soybeans ? Because we have depleted the soil and those crops are the easiest to grow. Iets start growing crops closer to the food demand. Diversified crops in different parts of the country instead of importing and exporting everything. It is like any other product. We need to change with the demand and supply.

It makes sense to reduce agriculture production when there is a glut.

Cauliflower is being substituted for wheat in some noodles and pasta by the keto crowd who want to avoid carbohydrates and by those who don't want to eat gluten.

Also something to consider: How many of these U.S. operated farms are Chinese owned (some data says 1/4), yet receive 'you're' tax dollars in subsidies? So the tariff has become more of an interruption of a Chinese business logistic plan. The closer one gets to the truth of it, the more convoluted it gets. Don't stare too long at the turning political spiral,..or you'll face hypnosis then find you're walking off a cliff.

is the interviewer even aware of the elites Agenda 21, to deliberately cause world food shortages to reduce the world population, and to drive farmers OFF the land so as to achieve this…

With this years pitiful harvest and a large percentage of land being set aside as prevent plant due to the flooding prices should be moving up. The USDA tells mostly lies.

I wonder how factual is the purported "Grand solar minimum" that some are suggesting is forthcoming upon the world. If its true then farming and food is going to be brought to the forefront of the news and the concern of everyone. Anyway, interesting interview–thank you Paul and Brian!

Wondering if he's thought about going to barley oats and rye. To better match recent shorter season. Next year might be worse. Buying seeds now because of shortages and rising prices. No silver order for me. We are going to short season sweet corn. Looking into buckwheat too. Hemp does hit in the 50$ per m². We grew hemp this year CBD extract. Some for super capacitor research. Graphene may keep coal miners in work. Organic growing is a return to tradition. Paper wheat now. Like paper gold.

Farmers are in a losing position. They produce the product, fight the weather, insects, weeds mortgage payments, the world thinking their own labor and worth is more valuable than the producing farmers. Then on top of all that, the cherry on top is like precious metals are being done, the sale on paper by fat assed leeches being legally able to buy or sell 10,000 bushel of grain on paper with no intention of taking posession of, or selling 100,000 bushel of grain they don't have. Thus playing havoc on the farmer, this coupled with goverment playing god on markets… Read more »

I don't know if farmers can just "switch" crops. The farming videos I watch on youtube show most farmers have "tooled-up" to run beans, corn and winter wheat. Planting, spraying, harvesting and storage of crops may not be that easy to just change.
