A SATURDAY FOOD CHAIN RELEASE FROM METROFARM.COM
(NOTE: a special request for your assistance follows this release.)

There are simply too many farmers! At least, that seems to be the contention of Undersecretary of Agriculture for Rural Development nominee Thomas Dorr. His solution? Replace family-scaled farms with 225,000-acre giants and reduce rural America to 1 farm for every 350 square miles.

This Saturday morning at 9am Pacific on AM 1080 KSCO, AM 1340 KOMY, AM 1480 KGOE and 107.5KMPH, the Saturday Food Chain with Michael Olson hosts Iowa farmers Darrel Bailey and George Naylor for a conversation about the Dorr nomination for Undersecretary of Agriculture for Rural Development. Topics include a profile of Thomas Dorr from his neighboring Iowa farmers; what the industrialization of agriculture means to rural America; and the security issues raised when many farm families are replaced by few farm corporations.
