LETTERS: Farm Bureau speaks for farmers everywhere | Opinion | The Free Lance-Star | December 23rd, 2013

This farmer may not have ever read "The Use of Knowledge in Society" but they get it: 

"I know my farm much better than a bureaucrat trying to apply blanket solutions to thousands of farms that vary greatly in size, type, soil capacity and a hundred other ways. Voluntary practices, encouraged by some cost share and technical assistance have proved effective in reducing runoff from farms. Now much of that effort will be wasted in forms, paperwork, deciphering regulations and similar nonsense that fulfills some bureaucratic goal but doesn't help the bay at all."
