Re: What if ??

Jim, if America's largest row crop operation that is also partnered with a large investment firm is having financial problems, could Cargill and ADM do much better? When you have people literally paying to farm, why step in and take their place? Chickens and hogs are "easy" to mass produce with much less risk from weather and insects. It's much the same as why you don't see meat packers in the cow/calf business - too much risk.
