You're right Tim. I was involved in a project in 2010 to photograph all of the dairy barns in Portage Co., WI where my grandparents farm was located. At that time a mere 10% of them were being used as dairy barns. However, we have more and more of the CAFO's (concentrated animal feeding operations) and are dealing with the problems that causes, such as wells polluted with animal feces and who knows what kind of medicines they feed these poor beasts! As a bonus, we're faced with a surplus of cheap milk, over-production of cheese (cheese-heads indeed) to a point where the 'gummint' has to buy it. To add insult to injury, the the little farm towns are in a state of perpetual decline with not enough residents to hold a 4th of July parade and they have to take turns being the town drunk...
