Editor's Comment: With the implementation of the Free Trade Agreement with the United States, where are going to be more and more sectors of Panamanian farmers who will be squeezed by more efficient producers. Just last week there were stories about drought in Los Santos, and how the dairy farmers are complaining because their cows are producing less milk. Of course the diary farmers would like for there to be a shortage to drive prices up, so they can sell 100% of their product at much higher prices, while simultaneously blocking imports from abroad. Err, no. Maybe milking cows by hand one at a time into a plastic bucket isn't the best way to go.
