Animated Ag


I haven’t done an Ag article for a while and one needs to be done if I want to keep face with you farmers out there.

One of the readers with agricultural interests sent me a link to Cows With Guns, http://www.shagrat.net/Portfolio/cows.swf so in return I sent her these two:

If you've never seen the Meatrix you really need to. It is about the evil stuff factory farms do to the food we eat. After the film you will be able to see Part II and then Part II & ½. Follow the link below.

And this one is about organic produce.

You know it's interesting you link to the cows with guns deal because just the other day President Bush was asked what he would do if cows started joining the NRA. Here's what he said; http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=PetIY4--klc&mode=related&search=

I like the picture a lot. Reminds me of my 5th grade teacher.

I haven't eaten meat since I read "The Jungle" by Upton Sinclair. I didn't need the visuals, though I've seen them many time since then.

When you purchase that kind of meat, you give your approval when you hand over your money.

One of the blessings of living out here in left nowhere is that 90% of your meat & produce is raised where you can watch. Since I retired back here years ago I no longer wonder where my food's been for the most part:)

Lori, I take it you went to school in the country.

Mo3 and Mike, we got 1/4 of a beef after the Fair two years ago and we are still working on it. It was good because it was very local, I knew what it was fed and how it was treated and we supported a FFA members efforts.

Yeah, Mike, but do you still have to wonder who your food's been WITH?

MO3, nope, I even know the butcher and the vets that take care of the critters. Most of the farmers here are friends as well. Like you, after I read the book I rarely ate meat any longer wondering where & with who it had been:)
