Meaning there will be 4 factory farms out there then ? Buy Creekstone Farms and this is not one of these factory farm places. Just what the country needs - meat monopolies. Hope this will not hurt the smaller farmers.

It's obviously going to hurt consumers I think. Any business so vital to consumers held
in so few hands -- well, there's oil and now meat. Can't be good for producers either, being
told what the value of their livestock is, take it or leave it.
