Which livestock and crops are least likely to be affected by economic woes due to the coronavirus pandemic? Which types of farms are best poised to ride this out?

Ag in general is going to do well.

Commodities like dairy, beef, and eggs are seeing a sharp increase in demand and the market prices reflect this.

Cereal makers are reporting ss much as 60% sales spikes - so wheat obviously figures to benefit.

Low fuel prices, lenders both being flexible and giving low rates to established borrowers - all bode well for industry.

I don't think the virus crosses over into animals. There are immune boosters you can buy for your stock if you're concerned. Also, the more rural you are, the better off you'll be.

For a change the crisis that is upon us is helping the ag industry instead of killing it off.

With that in mind, the fewer people your operation needs, the better off you will be
