Farmers get to wear sweet unis. Sometimes throwbacks depending on if mom has kept up on laundry.

Do you ever gamble on a sport? Farmers gamble a lot. Every time they sell a corn crop, they are locking in a contract price. The next day the corn prices could go really low or get really high. It's a chance they have to take. When you are selling hundreds of thousands of bushels? That's a big chance.
|Gambling with the markets, weather and input (diesel, seed, fertilizer) contracts happens on every farm.|
Heck, they've won the pennant.
