"Based on the best estimates of analysts, economists and other sources
interviewed by this publication, American agriculture must now quickly
consolidate all farmers and livestock producers into about 50 production
systems...each with its own brands...and several lines..."
And then, in a conclusion reminiscent of the Earl Butz-era headline in a
now infamous Time Magazine article, "...And the Message to Farmers Is --
Get Big or Get Out!" -- the editorial states --
"However, putting these systems together will be a Rushmorean task that
must begin now and be done with a sense of urgency. It is time to say to
the voices of anger and fear and resistance that they either need to join
the process or get off the mountain."
So that settles it I guess.
