Apr 19, 2019 | 22:51 2 Well, this quote was news to me:

"The meat industry is one of the largest sectors of the Canadian economy and it retains strong social influence on politics, marketing, media and education more generally."
Had anyone else noticed that?

Grassfarmer, what can we do, and what are you and NFU doing to counter such articles? Reply With Quote

They must mean dairy? Has influence because nothing else in agriculture has any influence at least not at the producer level. Reply With Quote

Sad but true..... My cows are eating grass off land too ugly for farming and the stuff we do farm is questionable too. I’m literally making something outta nothing and I’m the “bad guy” apparently. My midnight snack of Hawaiian pizza after checking cows definitely wouldn’t be the same without that “evil” ham and cheese on it. The fact the pineapple came halfway around the world is fine apparently ......😋 Reply With Quote

    You aren't making something outta nothing. You're converting solar energy to protein. Reply With Quote

  • blackpowder's Avatar Apr 20, 2019 | 07:22 7 The devolution of journalism and broadcasting in general is sad.
    For CBC to churn that stuff is treasonous.
    The holes in this fiction work are ridiculous. Reply With Quote

  • Apr 20, 2019 | 07:37 8 Like it or not, dairy produces meat too and lots of it. They do have the stronger voice when it comes to government.

    This from the article jumped out at me:

    "Gladwin said as much as 70 per cent of the Amazon has been deforested for factory-farmed beef."

    Is this a bigger issue for the powers that be? As opposed to the type of land here in Canada that is used for production?

    CBC is part of the New World Order whoever the f**k they are. I saw a banner on a news channel that said the leaders of the New World Order (whoever the f**k they are) are very concerned that their existence is threatened by all the right-of-center governments getting elected - including Donald Trump.

    That part of the article is bullshit.


    First of all, they they grown beans in the deforested areas - not catlte.


    Second of all beef in Brazil isn't factory farmed. They are raised on grass, in areas not dit for soybean production

    Of course you'd need a clue about ag and geography to know that and these imbrcioe reporters have neither. Reply With Quote

    That's not entirely accurate klause - soy bean meal is fed to cattle but more importantly is the source of protein for the poultry sector so a lot of the cleared land growing beans is producing something that gets fed in a "factory farm" somewhere. They have a feedlot sector in Brazil and it's expanding - feeding maybe 4 million cattle a year. Reply With Quote

    Feedlot finishing is 60 or 90 days there vs. here.

    Also the article is about "beef" not chicken or pigs while soy meal is fed to cattle far more is fed in North America and Europe than in Brazil...


    Soy is one of the most universal things humanity grows. It's components get used in everything from.chocolate to pasta.


    Never mind tofu and all the meat substitute products.



    Also... All this push to lab grown meat... A calorie is a calorie and the law of conservation of energy says it takes the same amount of energy either way to produce a calorie.


    Should we be producing it in a lab with fossil fuel energy or should we be producing it in the field with natures solar panels (grass).


    Can't have it both ways. GMOs are evil. Lab grown meat is good??? I don't think so. Reply With Quote

    Whoever pays the most gets the best rating . Lamb farmers obviously havent been paying enough extortion fees
    Seriouslly though , someone should be demanding some proof of this horseshit they print as the gospel?
