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.
