Sample text

The modern version of these beliefs that many people still hold includes: Farming is not only a business, it's a way of life. It is better for a family than a corporation to own a farm. Land should be owned by the person who tills it. Farmers should be their own bosses. Anyone that wants to farm should be able to. Farmers should be protected. Farmers are more ethical, more honest, and harder workers. Farm property rights are more sacred than others because of the importance of what farmers do with their land.

Marketing orders and quota systems that restrict production by law are routinely used for milk, tobacco, almonds, and other crops to control production and increase farm earnings. A person cannot grow and sell tobacco, for example, without verifying that he or she owns a piece of the allowable quota. Sometimes it seems as if agriculture is its own worst enemy. For example, we produce new products that make cows produce 1015 percent more milk, while in the mid-1980s we paid producers to slaughter dairy cows because we had too much milk.

The more deeply rooted the tradition, the harder it is to change. "People believe that society is disintegrating when it can no longer be pictured in familiar terms," said American lawyer Thurman Arnold. " Agriculture frequently experiences crisis because it is always changing. However, today's tradition was yesterday's change. Therefore, what is today's change will be tomorrow's tradition. Many things that we accept today were crises to those who had to change before us. For example, there was a time when farmers that had to supplement their incomes were seen as failures.
