====>Right Click to Download "CAFOs and Economic Development"

The weblog and podcast explore the economic development of CAFOs, so touted by the proponents of CAFOs. I found that CAFOs are not an economic benefit at all, but are in fact a drain on the rural economy.

====>Right Click to Download "Fantasy v. Reality"

You've seen those pleasant photos of cows frolicking in a green pasture surrounded by shade trees, pigs wallowing in cool mud, a rooster crowing on a rail fence, or salmon jumping in a pristine stream. While such pastoral scenes are depicted on packages, cartons and labels of meat, milk, and eggs, unfortunately those are completely bogus - just so much hype by multi-national corporations posing as "family farmers".

====>Right Click to Download "Repetition of a Lie"

Agribusiness repeatedly claim that the complaints and lawsuits about the stink from Concentrated Animal Feeding Operations (CAFOs) are coming from urban and suburban folks who have moved to the country and don't like the smells. This is nothing more than a lie - the complaints and lawsuits come from long time rural residents and farmers.

====>Right Click to Download "Feeding at the Public Trough"

While family farmers are perfectly capable of "feeding the world", most of the government largess flows to Corporate agribusinesses - millions of dollars in subsidies and grants. Consumers have become convinced that factory farms are a necessity This is not at all true, but rather is the hype spewed out by agribusinesses' hacks, lackey, lobbyists, and marketing gurus.
