ANF. America Needs Farmers. Just not very many of them.

Farmers are bypassing local vendors and buyers to find margins. [Disintermediation]. Livestock industry is vertically integrated and incredibly efficient.

Our little town is a wreck of a place compared to when I started farming in 1978. School closed, bank closed, hardware store closed, Church closed, grain elevator closed. I don't even know most of the people that live there now.

No business left.The Church turned into a meth lab. It is a disheartening and depressing situation and I wouldn't even know how to start trying to reverse the decline.
