Sure that lots of folks, when they hear the word ‘farmer,’ don’t realize that these corporations are holding (and/or are selling off) farmlands worth millions,tens of millions, considering resort area. Many bought ages ago for next to nothing – land rich.
When it’s time to sell, one can be sure they are well represented at the zoning hearing for top dollar.
What other business can have a product failure, and the government rushes in to help them out, if they’re sitting on millions – or barely anything? Just wondering. Good for the goose/gander.
SW: A large number of them grow a crop — chickens — that they don’t actually own. If they grow for certain chicken corporations, they are given both chickens and feed, aren’t they?
The point is that the Paul Harvey piece was a steaming helping of the myths that we Americans prefer to the ugly truth. Which is only natural considering that the whole point was to get you to buy a truck, not a farm.
Please name the corporations that own and operate farms in Delaware.
Which sort of bypasses the fact that most production farms of any size operate as corporations for many reasons.
Delaware’s poultry business operates largely as n “integrated” part of the major poultry processors, right? These mom and pop corporations (mainly) work for a processor providing chickens under contract. Not unlike farmers in alot of places, the paper value of the land they work sold for other purposes can be worth a great deal — even if the farming operation that is on it might not be.
SW, this conversation has multiple voices making multiple points. Mine relates back to the points made in this comment. You can stop lecturing people about the value of google while you figure out how to follow the conversation right in front of you.
No, but only because they’ve figured out a more lucrative business model: They own the chickens and feed, while the farmer picks up the rest of the expenses. The farmer is reduced to a contract worker.
And now we get to the deflection part of our program. I’m still in the conversation you seem to be abandoning, sport. When I was on a farm last doesn’t make one bit of difference to the reply I gave you.
Let's ask Ambassador Stevens what he thinks about the scandal. OOOPs, Obama's stupidity let him die.
