Maybe the farmers in Missouri are actually doing farming with their trucks, while the farmer/ranchers in your vicinity are driving around enjoying their empty trucks that they bought due to tax breaks.

BTW, a tax break is an obvious incentive meant to influence consumer spending by small business interests, but it's not the same as a subsidy - which is an actual handout.
