While I don't have a problem with them doing this, for some reason I have a problem believing they will GIVE it away.
The government commodity programs ended in the early 80s much to the destruction of family farms . I remember commodity cheese and pork and beef. In the 70s the government determined break even cost on farm products. If say milk went 20% below cost of production the government bought till the price returned to even if it rose above a certain % profit it sold its inventory to drop price.
Back then it stabilized food cost, provided food for the hungry and supplemented school lunch programs. It also guarantied as a nation we had a 90+ day supply of grains meat and dairy . We had a national pantry! Those Days are gone what we have now is just government subsidy to corporations till more family farms fail .
