Michael Juenemann sweeps an auger on his father-in-law's farm in Colby, KS on October 10, 2017. Juenemann, who farms small parcels of land himself with borrowed or rented equipment, cannot afford a down payment to purchase a large enough swath of land needed to be profitable. To boost profits, big farm owners are widening the gap between small and large farms to where just four percent of U.S. farms produce two-thirds of the country's agricultural output.
