Cost savings?

Is it really a cost-saving to tear down the grain elevators and rebuild monstrosities far away, causing farmers to use huge trucks to haul their grain? Who really pays for this "upgrade"? My guess is, the farmer, as farmers have little control over prices and distribution. Am I being cynical by suggesting that the large corporations are in it for profit, and only large-scale farmers can hope to survive?
