So those things all appear to be coming togetherin a way that makes it very difficult for many producers tosurvive. I think, in Appreciatioj, as far as increased costs, thepoultry industry has been producing chicken on average at5 cents to 15 cents per pound below cost this past year. So ifyou were to put that into--if you were to just gain that, youwere almost looking at a 15 percent increase in poultry pricescoming forward this next year, and that would be to just bringit back to even, not to moving it forward. So our expectationwould be that significant food inflation is on its way. Erba, in your testimony you discussedwestern-style dairying and its inherent vulnerability to feedscarcities and, therefore, fluctuating prices.
