Food producers across the country, from vegetable farmers to cattle ranchers, are being forced to destroy crops and animals on an unimaginable scale. This is not the result of the COVID-19 pandemic but rather its effects on monopolistic processing and packing plants, many of which have been shuttered due to localized outbreaks of the virus. Even worse, meat and produce is still being imported into the United States from poorly-regulated countries such as Namibia. If there is anything that makes the case for decentralizing food processing and packing plants in the United States, and implementing common-sense policies on food imports such as Country of Origin Labeling, it’s this current crisis. ~Editor

“We are ploughing under vegetable crops from coast to coast. We are euthanizing millions of chickens. We are aborting sows and burying feeder pigs. We are dumping milk by the hundreds of thousands of gallons, and now they are preparing us to depopulate the fat cattle ready to harvest because of a bottleneck caused by the effects of COVID…”

  1. Mandate Country of Origin Labeling

  2. Why can we not buy beef from you? Is there a meat market close to you to have it cut and packaged . We could come get it.

  3. The American citizenry must demand that our country STOP importing meat from Nambia and China!

  4. Go online and have air-conditioned trucks go to LA and OC to sell directly. Any help?


  5. most of our Salmon comes Chilie….stuff looks sick, I won’t eat it.

  6. It’s not that simple. There used to be hundreds of small packing plants (where beef, pork, chickens etc.) were processed and distributed, often to local markets. My Dad was in the business and I worked at several of these small plants while working my way through college. The problem was (is), as usual, government over regulation. There were so many restrictions and regulations put on these small plants by the USDA that, by the 1980’s, most of them had been run out of business. Then, that same regulatory group turned around and allowed millions of metric tons of food to be imported into the USA from third world countries with almost no regulation and certainly no requirements for how these animals were slaughtered, processed, packed and shipped. This was a huge loss for our country and for our producers, who used to have the choice of selling to local packing plants with their products distributed locally. The answer to this conundrum is simple, let our producers sell to local packing plants – hell, they used to have cooperatives that ran and operated these plants – local consumers benefited and producers who provided superior products benefited. The USDA regulated them out of business then turned a blind eye on the nasty stuff coming in from Nambia and other places where healthy practices are nonexistent. I watched this happen, I worked at those places, my Dad spent his whole life involved in this. Somebody is getting rich as a result of the USDA and NONE of it is benefiting the US consumer. The same people say “why buy from local ranches? Why should they graze on public lands? They don’t provide a major percentage of our beef anyway. Almost all of our beef now comes from huge feedlots – where tens of thousands head of cattle are stacked literally on top of each other – eating “silage” that is so nasty it burns your eyes and nose to smell it! I’ve ridden these feedlots, BIG ones in Colorado, after 3 weeks none of my horses could even hold shoes on their feet, I was sick, they were sick and THIS is what you are eating now! Thanks to the USDA and liberal politicians who force this crap (literally) down our throats while they eat boutique beef at fancy restaurants and we pay the bill!
