YOU TAKE THE CARROT ... and they whack you with the stick. Every bloody damn time. But do we learn?
Stroup, and other USDA officials, don't like to call this spying on farmers, and they prefer not to talk about farmers cheating. They say it's mostly just a way to keep their records accurate; most farmers do obey the rules. ...
Officials say they're trying to decide how much of their surveillance data they can share, without violating the privacy of American farmers.
