No doubt. I checked out the report and I would guess the number of Agri Bus (3,041) vs. the number of farms (107,825) will be greatly changed in
favor of Agri Businesses. So sad. Something else that is sad (at least here in Indiana) is the number of independent farmers having to put their
land up for sale, and when it is sold, we either get a new neighborhood of big, fancy houses, or a "Factory Farm" (Agri Bus).
Will people realize that without farm land we won't have anything to eat? I am very concerned because I don't want to eat food from these mega
farms where animals are crammed into small spaces living in each other's waste and I don't want to eat genetically modified anything!
My thoughts will be with those farmers in Missouri and I hope things can get turned around in the right direction. Good luck to all in the area.
