    warrant a ministry all to themselves

    Do farmers still warrant a ministry all to themselves? I think they do.


    This sentence is taken from the Collins Cobuild Usage, without any context, in the entry of ELLEPSIS. What does the phrase 'a ministry' mean in this sentence, a government department or the profession or work of a church minister? (I would think it means the former, but I'm not sure.)
