News story: California dairies going broke
Here is another example of food producers going through hard times. If you can picture this happening to any farmer or rancher or food producer of any type, you can imagine what will happen to our food supply when the majority of them can no longer make money.

Cameron made a name for herself in a male-dominated industry: She led

her 900 milking cows and 1,000 heifers.
