A couple of months ago, I posted about American farmers whose backs were against the wall and in danger of going under. MANY on here pooh-poohed it even though I provided data to the contrary. Some even said I had no knowledge or understanding of farming. At the time, I bit my tongue and let it go.
I do have first hand knowledge of farming, having worked on farms in my youth and having spent all my adult life in close association with many Dairy and grain farmers who were generous and gracious enough to let me hunt their properties in 4 states and 2 Canadian provinces over those 45+ years. They were, without exception, the most humble, kindest and proud people I have ever met. None were looking for handouts, Heck, they didn't even want money from me for the privilege I was asking for. In fact, most invited me into their homes for conversation and a meal.
And now this. https://www.msn.com/en-us/money/mark...ing/ar-BBTfj7M
This is just the tip of the iceberg.
Many on here lament the growth of Agribusiness and what it means to the hunters, fishermen and environment. As these small farms go under, who do you think gains more control of agriculture?
Food for thought and a topic to discuss. -Paul
