Records indicate $49 million went to millionaires.
So, if you're a "millionaire" farmer who is otherwise eligible for the subsidy, you shouldn't get it? The subsidy is not meant as a wealth-redistribution mechanism, but as an agricultural control mechanism. What does one's net worth have to do with that?

(Equality of opportunity, not equality of outcome)
it’s a price control mechanism btw.

With the price of farmland at about $1200 per acre, one doesn’t have to have a very large farm to own $1 million worth of land.
