Quote of the Day 10/21/2013

[Producers and farmers] have deadlines and payments and they are trying to recover after a three-year drought. We have had a little rain, but you don’t recover overnight from a drought, and any little hiccup like this government shutdown doesn’t help. They are our friends and we are going to do our best for them.
