...sad, but true. It is not enough to know what you eat, folks really need to consider how it got to their table.
There are merits to small, local farms. Unfortunately, one of them isn't cheap food. Of course, I am of the opinion that no food is cheap, unless you don't count the "hidden" costs of our current food production practices on individuals and the environment....

Thanks Don, unfortunately this practice has being going on for years in some parts. My late husband, who was a farmer, used to get really angry about it!

Yet MORE cause for concern regarding dairy and livestock practices:

Got Milk? A Disturbing Look at the Dairy Industry

Most dairy enthusiasts would be horrified to know the conditions cows endure and how closely dairies are tied to veal operations and the rest of the meat industry.
