Farmers in the 1920's experience never got to experience the "Roaring Twenties." It was always bad for them. During WWI, there was a high demand for loads of crops. Farmers bought tons of new machines and made a lot of crops. They never thought about what would happen if WWI ended. Once it ended, there was a surplus of crops and farmers had little money because they spent it all on new machines. This was the 1920's. Then comes the 1930's. Farmers were still struggling so they started to plow to top soil off their crops. The wind picked up all of the top soil and this is the start of the Dust Bowl. Now, on top of all their problems, there crops were being destroyed, people and animals were being killed, and everything that they had ever worked on was completely destroyed.
