Meat Production & Politics
STATE OF AFFAIRS 2/9/11: When we dig into a platter of ribs or finish off our chicken salad sandwich, most of us would rather not think about where it comes from. But the realities of meat production affect the economy of Kentucky & that of the nation. This Thursday we'll talk about where our meat comes from, and what impact the U.S. Farm Bill has on big and small meat producers. Is the deck stacked against small farmers, or will they eventually control a bigger share of the market? Is humane, healthy, sustainable meat processing at odds with the economic realities of farming? Join us with your thoughts about the meat industry in Kentucky.
