The government shutdown is affecting agriculture businesses all over the country and right here in the Valley.

Ohio farmers are now without promised paychecks to relieve the much lower prices, due to losing the Chinese market for soybeans.

Jennifer Pemberton, the Mahoning County Farm Bureau president, spoke to 21 News about this time of uncertainty.

"There is a lot of uncertainty in the market right now," said Pemberton.

Some functions of the U.S. Department of Agriculture are shut down due to the partial government shutdown.

This means that farmers can not get the government subsidies they were promised after the government put high tariffs on many of their goods.

The monthly World Agricultural Supply and Demand Estimates will not be released.

Pemberton is now hoping that this all comes to end soon.

"I think shutting the government down and not having a budget is not the end solution. It is impacting peoples day to day lives. How can we get the right people to the table having the right conversations to make something happen," said Pemberton.
