Depopulation - Who Cares

SF has an article online about 80% of rural counties are depopulating.

 

Farms are consolidating.  Bigger combines, sprayers, soon autonomous vehicles.  

 

You wouldn't hire anyone if they were there, right?

 

Seriously, what difference does it make if the kids move to town to get a job?  They still into your social security.

 

Ah, but they aren't paying for road up keep.  The stores close (but you by online anyway).

 

What DIRECT affect does less population have on your farming operation?
