It is not a given. For some, it is anyone who farms more acres than he does! So he bellyaches and whines. Lot of it is jealousy. Many BTO are very good, efficient farmers. If not, they would never achieve BTO status. Yes, goes both ways. No shortage of sloppy smaller operators either. Same as in any other business or industry.

Exactly. Seems a lot of smaller operators want what they want, with no competition, and they want it at below current market prices. Same people generally whine like a cat with it's tail caught in a car door when someone wants to buy hay from them at below market price (as an example)

A lot of people are stuck in a time gone by, and refuse to accept the fact that others have adjusted to the times, with 'em or without 'em. Like it or not, times have changed. Regardless of how well a person adjust's, times will continue to change. It's just a reality some folks won't accept.

Let's see:
1) No competition wanted or tolerated.
2) Rent, fertilizer, seed, etc. below market price
3) Cries when somebody wants him to cut his price
4) Cries when he gets beat on a rental deal. You just described four BTO's who have spoken out since New Year's Day around here. Even the Mennonites are snipping at each other here.
