Safe Mode: On
Big Agro Putting Small Farmers Out of Business With the Feds's Help

This is a typical example of fascism in action, where the gov is used as a weapon by an industry:

One farmer who raises pigs of a breed resistant to cold weather is being sued by a Federal agency that claims his pigs are "feral", an "invasive species" that can't be allowed to be raised because they carry diseases.

This farmer fights for his livelihood and appeals to people's financial support to pay legal bills because if he loses, it's a precedent that will be used to shut down all other family farms that raise rare breeds of animals.

Biodiversity is a way for Nature to preserve a species in case a breed is wiped out by a disease or external conditions, then another breed may survive.
But the Fed only wants the pink pig variety, the one that is raised in concentration camps by Big Agro.

  • this is the fascist agenda pushed by Monsanto that has the federal government under complete control by now, and the small farmer will be completely wiped out within 3 years.

  • Bet they still pay taxes.

    These pigs could begin to swing the industry to free range. Codex Alimentarus doesn't support this.

    This said I only eat free range or homekill. If it's preserved it's gotta be done the old school way. No sodium nitrate, just good ol' curing, salt and time!

    • @hedgehog
      Monsanto had a factory in Coleraine in Northern Ireland.... it was shut down years ago after statistics showed that Coleraine people where way above the national average for cancer sufferers and victims.
      It was Monsanto that suddenly announced it was closing the (profitable) factory when these facts came out, and since Monsanto's closure, that cancer number has dropped below the national average.

      Monsanto denied all culpability, got out and destroyed the evidence as soon as they whe More..

  • The Russian pigs and other breed he has are a tremendous risk to the ecosystem. Wehave had some escape from game farms here in Pa (naturally unreported and unadmitted)and we are scared to death they will become uncontrollable, like in Texas and Georgia. They are a huge problem in Europe.
    I saw one in North Carolina decades ago at camp lejeune that was massive. It swam the intercoastal waterway and went into the camp ground. Tore up tents and picnic baskets and chased people. they called the bas More..

    • @grunt "They are a huge problem in Europe" - where do you get that from?

      In Ireland, diversity in animals and crops is actively encouraged - it makes for higher quality meat products, a greater range and choice of meats, and has dramatically improved the health of the nation.
      Mass production of animals, the clinical/chemical cull and stripping of the carcass and the additives in the end product for human consumption, can only deteriorate a nations health. The evidence is already there More..

  • guys american law is similar to our laws.
    in the uk we have a legal maxim called MORT MAINE 'dead hand'
    a legal maxim is an unarguable fact in court
    'no one can ever argue against it'
    mort maine 'dead hand',means that NO CORPORATION OR COMPANY HAS AUTHORITY OVER A HUMAN BEING. unless they give them that authority.
    you can tell any corp/comp to go away.
