So watched it; learned A LOT!
Did not know that 70% of the corn that is grown in the US is used for feeding cows/pigs/chickens... only 30% of all that is grown is actually consumed by humans! That means if we actually fed cows/chickens what they were meant to eat... grasses/bugs/worms... we would be planting maybe 40% of the crop we grow now!! This makes the soil healthier and would result in less pesticides and fertilizers (If any).
One farmer in Virginia rotates cows, turkey, chickens, and wheat on his land. They all work together to make happy everything!!!
These "farmers" that have turned their farms in to industries are ruining the health of the land, animals, and humans... not to mention breeding super germs. I had no idea that there are sewage lakes from pigs. Toxic and unusable. Full of hormones and antibiotics!
One farmer had to kill his whole lot of pigs after he industrialized... they all had some form of respiratory issues and/ or diarrhea. After he converted back into a more organic farm, he saved $14,000 a year by not using antibiotics to treat the filth he had created among his herd!!!
Makes me angry that people think it is okay to do this and then sell this "product" to the public, and the public is unaware of the toxins they are feeding to their families! This nonsense should be ILLEGAL!!!!
Ahhh! I wish I had more land! What I would do with it... Oh, the things I would grow!
I guess my almost acre yard will have to do for now... what shall I plant????
Yes, and this is why we buy only organic and do not buy meat, dairy, or eggs. We buy as much locally as we can, and grow as much as we can ourselves, the only eggs we eat are the eggs from our own free ranging organic chickens. Many of the industrialized "farming" practices probably would be illegal if the factory "farming" industry, big pharma and producers of fertilizers, pesticides, and herbicides didn't hold so much sway.
Even the white house "organic" garden was protested by Mid America CropLife Association, which represents Monsanto, Dow AgroSciences and DuPont Crop Protection, and others.
It is also, I think, important to understand that these current factory farming practices, and the toxic bogs they produce, are not at all sustainable. They are going to have to come to an end one way or another.
Semi-recently, Hungary plowed down 1000 acres of corn found to be GM, I believe of Monsanto's, GMOs are illegal there.
Now, if only Monsanto would stop winning against small farmers whose crops have become infested with their nasties, usually completely undesired by the farmer, and in some cases really not desired, as is the case for any organic farm, that would be a start.
