Good to hear that. More help is always appreciated during such a tough time. I wonder how much assistance is exactly provided honestly. Statistical proofs say it all.

These USDA funding programs have been going on since before the virus hit. I wonder if the current stimulus packages they are handing out because of the virus, are adding to that or not. I ask because we here about funding going to X part of the economy, but not Y. (This part)
