too many people in this world don't know what they are talking about before they speak. i do know what i am talking about, i've lived on a traditional family farm all of my life. my family farm is surrounded by what many call "factory farms" or CAFOs. however, unlike most activists, i know what i'm talking about when i speak of CAFOs, and i speak in favor of them. Concentrated Animal Feeding Operations are not evil idustrys who are out to kill the family farmer, they are family farmers who had been so blessed to be able and expand their herds to large numbers. they still hold deep in their heart and soul the same values that every other farmer in the world has. and they are simply surviving in a world where farmers loose more money than they make. even CAFO farmers are lucky to break even at the end of the day. however they continue to do what they do, not to make money, but because they love what they do. factory farms are not a bad thing, they are an amazing thing, they are proof that american farmers are adapting to a changing world and that we are continualy proving, we are the very best at what we do. thank you.
