So you want them to slit their own throats. Purposely not competing...

Family farms have been pooling resources since family farms existed.

What about custom farming, where does that come in? Do you want it outlawed?

Farmers put themselves in this hole, now they need to get out.

And no, Custom farming is better than leasing/renting.

The owner still is the owner, they are just paying for labor.

I don't eat meat. If I do, it's Nolen Ryan beef. Perhaps 2 times a year. I can buy seasonal produce from the local farmers market or grow it myself.

Next time you go to the grocery read the barcodes if you can. They have the country of origin on them. If you know the code.

Much of the processed food is owned by foreigners.

Pfffft. Your last two items aren't even marketing decisions. And if you are producing a large volume of a commodity, selling your produce to a broker is probably the easiest and least expensive course of action.

Also...there are few enterprises in which the weather is as crucial as in agriculture. How anyone could think otherwise is quite baffling, frankly.

Seriously...your thinking in this area is juvenile and ill-informed. You'll want to improve your knowledge and understanding on this topic before attempting to spout adolescent opinions.

What if I rent the land and have someone else do the custom work? Would you make that illegal?

What about co-ops? Outlaw those?

Some farmers are hurting. You act as if every farmer in America is headed into solvency. And of course you think you have a better plan even though you've never farmed.

Op is somee kind of socialist or something. I forget the exact category.

His posts have been going on for months. Op doesn't want to accept reality. Check out some of the op's gun threads for more of the same.

It's time for taxpayers to cut off farmers. $50 Billion to farmers is ridiculous. There's too many farmers and some need to go get regular jobs.

These are all the farmer handouts for Kansas and Missouri, it's eye opening.

I want to Outlaw nothing. I'm say the dynamics of the farming business should change to dissuade these practices.

Farming Cooperatives are a great tool for local family farms to survive, but that dynamic needs to change. Sure they make more money this way but that's besides the point.

You make a strong case for illiteracy.
