gispa aka fair farming rules?
I was flipping through some farming newspaper at a friend's house and came across an editorial calling for GISPA aka the fair farming rules to be killed off for good. They said that it's a lawyers ideal bit of rules because of all the lawsuits it would offer. Seems like a bullshit scare tactic to me, and when I did a little more searching, that's what others were saying. The big boys in my state are opposed to it. My gut tells me that it keeps the Packers from cutting sweetheart deals with the few big players, but that's all I can guess at? What are the real pros and cons of it? If it does actually help "the little guy" why in hell does it exist? There doesn't seem to be a lot of political will these days to try and help out small timers at the possible expense of big boys?
