Kashney Welch AEB 3133 – Principles of Agricultural Management Fall 2010 Dr. Lurleen Walters Farm Structure: Which sectors have undergone significant structural change? What are some possible implications? Within the Production Sector, livestock agriculture has undergone significant change because production is more specialized now in regards to the demands of the market. They are specialized in different stages of production to ensure the efficiency of specified products getting to the market in a timely manner. Smaller farms now rely on specialized labor opposed to different production measures in the past. With its production sector being as efficient as it is now, this has opted for smaller farms to be able to produce more. The problem that these specialized labor functions pose is that growing to a more efficient scale also concentrates livestock in a limited area, and excess concentrations of manure-based nutrients can lead to an increased air and water pollution.

    As a current student on this bumpy collegiate pathway, I stumbled upon Course Hero, where I can find study resources for nearly all my courses, get online help from tutors 24/7, and even share my old projects, papers, and lecture notes with other students.

    I cannot even describe how much Course Hero helped me this summer. It’s truly become something I can always rely on and help me. In the end, I was not only able to survive summer classes, but I was able to thrive thanks to Course Hero.

    The ability to access any university’s resources through Course Hero proved invaluable in my case. I was behind on Tulane coursework and actually used UCLA’s materials to help me move forward and get everything together on time.
