Larry, good man.

To be married, is to be divorced from one's self.

You have two options: find somebody who will pay a price that you would like, or close down.

For reference, see Irish Steel, or Sunbeam Wolsey, or Dwyers, or more recently Bourns Electronics etc, etc, ad infinitum.

Sure, the guy who owns Apple built a big swimming pool, and the guys who set up Penneys made a shitload of money, but hey, that's the way things go

Now shut up and get ready to pay more carbon taxes so that we can as a country pay the €60 million portion of EU fines next year directly attributable to farming.

Oh, and don't forget to "support your local family farm."

Good point but you are missing the real reason here. Farmers want to keep keep the beef enterprise and the land and most importantly the real job, the one off the farm, garda etc. Who wouldn't want two incomes and an asset that increases in value over time all paid by us suckers.
