Ag news you can use
I recently purchased a quarter cow from local farm collective that is pasture raised and finished. Nice to have a small freezer full of good healthy food! We need more farms like this. They care for the animals and land.
Seems like Gates is neck-deep in all the 'evil' things these days....makes you wonder what the CIA has on him after he buddied around with Epstein for so long. I'm sure it's just a coincidence that Gates is pushing for everything The Swamp wants but can't grab on its own...........
We have a small beef herd. The issue is finding processors...then of course, the USDA has made it ILLEGAL for me to sell my beef, even though the processor we use is USDA inspected. I have spoken with former USDA inspectors.....they are not actually inspecting all the meat anyway. They spot check at BEST...and usually only check meat where a cow looks somehow unhealthy before slaughter.
If the processor passes inspection, then why can I NOT sell my meat legally to my neighbors? It's OK for me sell the meat to someone BEFORE processing and they pick it up for their own consumption from the same processor, but we cannot pick it up and market it AFTER slaughter. The rules ONLY make sense when you consider they are designed to make it next to impossible for people like us to compete with Publix or Kroger.
Most towns used to have a processing plant where you could take animals...they are fewer and fewer nowadays...and this is a shame.
Absolutely great substack.
100% agree with small producers being shut out of the market. And not just with cattle. Remember, most cattle for meat are produced by independent ranchers, who then sell the calf to the finishers at local livestock auctions in the fall or winter. These finishers then take the calves to mammoth feedlots for the rest of the animal's life, not little grass pastures. I don't think corporate America have figured a way to profitably raise beef, it is much easier to force independents to shoulder this cost of owning the cow for it's calf producing life. Corporate buyers pick up the calves at dirt cheap prices at the local stock auctions, then control the slaughter and distribution of the meat to the super market. This is how we are really squeezed.
As an old certified organic producer, I also get pretty angry watching new ways corporate food chains and William (Billy) Gates circumvent the intent of the original program. The consumer thinks they are buying healthy food due to that organic label, but you are much better off to buy local or grow your own and not be deceived by that label and what you think it and the food represents. Brand new untested product, kinda like the vaxxes, is Apeel. Another Gates block buster.
Soon to be sprayed all over your "organic" fruit and vegetables.
The healthcare industry is taking this same path with expansion (vertical integration) of the Frightful Four entities; CVS, Walgreens, Amazon and Walmart. Control healthcare and you control the people - Saul Alinsky, Rules for Radicals.
I foremost am a carpenter. Aside from planting a small garden every year to produce some fresh garden vegetables I’m not to connected to farming. However I do have deep thoughts about my work and what I leave on this earth when I’m gone. I do have pride in many projects that I have built that will be here long after I’m dead. It’s dis heartening to see this push for lab grown meat, genetically modified fruit and vegetables, insects as a source of protein, destroying an industry of farmers and ranchers that have worked hard all their lives to one day leave this legacy to their family. In todays world I do feel bad for the young. Many will never feel that freedom of hard work, callused hands, and that inner feeling that you have contributed something good and healthy to this world.
As a part time grass fed beef farmer, Robert hit the nail on the head. Keep it going. I love the posts.
Every time I see something about how we must eat insects to save the planet, I think about David Icke and his lizard people. It would certainly explain the relish the "elites" have for this idea. But it's more likely they simply plan starvation for us and I assume one eats anything in that scenario.
So - it's imperative that we figure out ways to circumvent their plans. Dr. Malone is right. Every one of us lives in a community where we can ferret out local farmers. Like cash, it's a resource where you use it or lose it. I'm convinced the only chance to get out of this is to simply withdraw from their systems. I've stopped investing in financial instruments and instead am investing in local farmers. As Catherine Austin Fitts says, you might only have a 1% chance of succeeding, but if you go along with them, you have zero % chance. She says they're poisoning us and putting in place a slave system. If enough people build an alternative, they won't succeed.
No insects to eat for me. Never. I do not consent to this satanic agenda.

I want to keep living as long as I can just to spite them.
Watch for Gates to start shipping labmeat to schools. The new ‘mystery meat’
Welcome to the New World Order and the Great Reset. Right out of Orwell, including the end of nation states, population reduction (genocide), and rule by unaccountable elites. Everything you need to live -- water, energy, food, healthcare -- will be controlled. China is the model.
This is real, planned, and rolling out now. See Agenda 2021 or Agenda 2030 for details. Wake up!!!!!
A 3D animated short film about not too distant but a dystopian future. It speculates on the potential consequences of the infamous Great Reset, medical tyranny, woke culture, and green agenda. This is what our own Congress, American Marxists and the World Economic Forum (WEF) is planning for us.
IT IS REAL. IT IS HAPPENING. AND IT IS JUST SHORT OF TOO LATE TO STOP IT.

Everything seems to be measured in dollars nowadays; take that, Metric System!
In the interest of accuracy, you state LP is used as fertilizer. Natural gas is used to make anhydrous ammonia which is injected into the ground and produces amazing yields as the nitrogen component of a full fertilizer spectrum. You made several other implications that are not entirely correct as well. As a Degreed Agricultural Engineer I would be willing to review your comments before you publish them to avoid any confusion and the possibility of enemies totally torching your article for misinformation.
The Prime Act floated in congress a couple of years ago which would have allowed more small slaughter houses under local state supervision instead of the USDA. This was knocked down solely because the meat industry wants a very small number of large packers so they can have easier export market control.
Secondly, we need interest rates to stay high to kill off ridiculous ideas like making meat in a lab which is way more expensive than traditional farming. Memphis Meats and these other companies are dependent on 0% interest rates and getting rid of them will get rid of idiot ideas like this.
Crickets, yuck! Get your fresh fruits and vegetables and the farmers market near you. Grow a garden. We just expanded ours again this year. Don’t expect to be taken care of. Take care of yourselves.
