BISMARCK, N.D. _ Jamie Beyer says she knew way back in 2017, when President Donald Trump first started talking about tariffs, that the soybeans her family grows in Minnesota and South Dakota were likely to become a weapon. But these are days of “a little bit of panic” among farmers, she said, as they reel from prices that plunged this week to a 10-year low. “We’ve been brought into this deal, a sacrificial lamb, when it isn’t about our product and it isn’t about our trade market,” Beyer said. “It’s extremely hard to take.” One economist said the farm sector may face its greatest downturn since the late 1980s, with widespread bankruptcies and consolidation.
