The Number of Farms Decline

In a report Thursday, NASS reported that the number of U.S. farms is on the decline. Surprised?

Re: The Number of Farms Decline

A good lot of the 5,800 decline in farms are retirement, when a farmer with 1,000 acres hits 77 yrs old and retires there usually isn`t a new farmer to step into the operation`s shoes.  The land is absorbed into a number of  neighboring operations or one single 10,000 acre operation that becomes a 11,000 acre operation.   I`m guessing it`s typical, only noticeable if you`re searching for new board members for the Farm Bureau  Smiley Happy

NASS   trick  question   maybe -  although  getting  an  answer  from  one  of  your   political  constituents  in  D  C  would  be  interesting,  IF  staying  on  point  had  merit  -   -   -

  Why  does  the  word  consolidation ,  and  subscribers  ,  pose  a  conversation  - ?
