Welcome to European Tribune. It's gone a bit quiet around here these days, but it's still going.
True that is not a necessary condition, but I think there is a relationship. Industrial farming tends to try to decrease natural variation in order to create monocultures that can be standardised to a higher degree.

Family farms tends to vary in size over time, depending on large an area and number of animals a family can handle. So I think it might very well be family farms with robotic implements and few personnel that will be able to minimize food cost and carbon dioxide emissions.
