Very sad when farmers won't eat what they grow..

That's repulsive and sad about the livestock being fed candy. Makes all the canning I did the past few months all the more worthwhile.

I heard that story, too. the spin I heard was a day when the farmer they interviewed had fed his animals gummy bears by the pound. garbage in garbage out.

speaking of candy - it wasn't too long ago that it was reported that some farmers were feeding their animals (I believe this time it was pigs) expired (you know, beyond the "best before" date) candy instead of proper feed - because it was cheaper!

I agree with all of these!
I'm happy to see this is getting around more. I try to tell people about corn-fed beef all the time and they think I'm crazy. I may be crazy but I was raised on a working ranch and that's like feeding your kids only candy and expecting them to thrive: ain't gonna happen!
