183. Again, the vast majority of monocrops are grown for animal feed.
"Vegetarians are part of the problem too" is a strange claim when 85% of soy is grown for feed.

I think it's likely that the percentage of vegetarians who support small & local farmers is at least on par with the percentage of omnivores who support small & local farmers.
