Agree and disagree.Just cause some one runs a big business they have an ego? So every company out there that isn’t a ma and pa shop have egos and are greedy? Is these seriously what you guys think? Different things drive different people, the guy that farms 50 or 100k would be bored silly farming 2000ac on his own. Doesn’t mean either is right or wrong.
I think if not most expand for more profitability. Some do expand for ego purposes.
Many BTO's here are average down to earth people but there are a couple who fall into the I'm a BTO and better then you category.
20 years ago I used to give a **** about how much other people farmed, as life has progressed I've found its easier to not care. Don't get me wrong I plan on continued expansion and still like to know who is farming what but I sure don't care anymore if Johnny Farmer down the road has 1000 or 10000 more acres.
