To help in what I'm doing, writing Congressmen, etc., I need more
info. Here are some of my questions:
What foods other than hogs and poultry are produced by corporate
farms? I assume that beef is also. And grains?
Is aquaculture both a corporate and an individual farming activity?
What is the role of large-scale corporate farms in producing food (ie,
their share of the market)? For example, do corporate farms produce
X%, and projected to produce X% in the future?
Might there be a change in these figures as consumers become aware of
the costs associated with corporate farming? I refer to social and
environmental costs and $$$ costs of government subsidies to these
corporations. Are corporate farms faced with a reduced profit in such
a scenario likely to move to foreign countries? Will this result in
food shortages in the US?
What do you think is the likely future role of the family farm in
producing foods that corporate farms specialize in?
Your response will be very helpful.
