Impacts of the Mississippi flood on Midwest farmers

The heavy rains in the central part of the US have caused a lot of flooding along the Mississippi River and many other rivers in the region.  This is the worst flooding since 2011 and has been compared to the 1993 devastating floods.  This has caused major problems for crop and livestock farmers.  AgWeb published a story with audio earlier this week that described some of the terrible impacts on the producers in that area.
