Let's all face it, most of the problem is caused by government regulations. It started getting more costly to farm and ranch beginning in the late 50's that the small farmer who could not support his family sold out to the larger farmers, turned his part time in-town employment into a full time job and moved into town. As the family farms became fewer and fewer and the emigration to the larger cities the demand for goods and services locally caused the farmer turned full time in town employee to lose his job because his employer closed up shop and moved to a larger city. EPA may have all the stats but fail to realize they are the problem, its not because the young do not want to farm or ranch its is because EPA regs make too costly
