Large sign on piece of farm equipment reads, "Support American Agriculture Movement, farmers plant less," with barn in background. "The American Agriculture Movement was born in the fall of 1977 out of desperation, congress had just enacted another farm bill that insured four more years of prices paid to farmers below their cost of production, in other words, every time a farmer produced and sold a commodity, he or she went a little further in debt and lost a little more equity in their land and equipment," from the American Agriculture Movement's website.
