Despite what advocates of corporate farms claim, it is the family farmer that has fed this country for years. Corporate farming, another form of communal farming has failed in the USSR and other socialists nation.

We need to support our family farmers before it is to late. Please read the following article supporting family farmers.

Those who advocate corporate farming usually have their own greed in their heart. Family farmers create economic growth in our small towns and we need to support them.

Thanks Mouthpiece; I look forward to the Thursday article.
Vertical Integration is wreaking havoc on the small producer AND to the consumer, but the consumers are waking up.
I consider myself a republican with libertarian leanings but I am embarrassed that the SD republican party seems to mindlessly support morally bankrupt farming practices that have hurt the state. The dems from large cities do this too.
When so-called farm groups with deep pockets, who can afford trips to Washington DC call on our reps, the reps feel that these groups truly represent the people of the state.
That is why it is important to contact your state and national reps and let them know where you stand.
You cannot blame them for not reading your mind.
Ditto the products you enjoy, contact the companies and tell them what you want.
Chipotle, for example buys their beef from small producers.
