Sample text

The first use of the term “agricultural medi­ cine” in the United States can be traced to 1955 with the founding of the Institute of Agricultural Medicine (IAM) at the University of Iowa within the College of Medicine. This institute was organized with a multi‐professional faculty (after the philosophy of the one‐health approach) that Agricultural Medicine included a physician, an industrial hygienist, a veterinarian, a microbiologist, an anthropologist, an agricultural engineer, and a toxicologist (17, 18).

This meant that the lowest cost producer had the advantage. This resulted in increased global competition and demand for increasing productivity (more products with less labor), narrowing profit mar­ gins, and a force to get bigger to be able to stay in business. The 1990s was a period of increased globalization of economies, exacerbating the forces previously mentioned. International trade agreements also further enhanced these forces, which created economic stress on traditional family farm operations, increasing the decline in their numbers that has continued into the cur­ rent millennium.
