Re: Weather schmeather, farming`s gonna be good.

Hey Nox, I`m just thinking this all through out loud on here and enjoying all the comments. No one knows the real future, but it makes for interesting discussion.  One futurist said "world war 3 will be fought with nuclear weapons. And ww4 will be fought with sticks and stones".   I think that once the genie is out of the bottle on technology, I just don`t see how we put it back or even if we want to. Something very catastrophic would have to happen to put a end to 48 row planters and hog confinements.  The buggy whip companies and kerosene lantern companies still exist, but only as a niche market. If ag stays on this course, in a few yrs we`ll be talking about 96 row planters and maybe meat will be a luxury, time`ll tell.
