Organic and Sustainable Agriculture News
Something to squawk about
Portland Press Herald - 10/12/2011.
When Steve Hoad and his daughter Rose began producing as many as 2,000 to 2,500 chickens and turkeys on their Windsor farm, they thought it might be a good investment to build their own slaughtering facility to process their birds for market. But after doing a lot of research and crunching some numbers, the Hoads concluded that the project didn't make sense financially.
Workshop offers different look at obesity
Kennebec Journal - 10/11/2011.
By John Richardson – Junk food and inactive lifestyles may not be the only reasons so many Americans are overweight. Some researchers now believe that chemicals in the environment may be reprogramming babies' metabolisms. Chemical exposure, they say, may help explain the dramatic rise in obesity, even among young children.
Heritage livestock: milk ‘em for all they’re worth
Grist - 10/11/2011.
By Claire Thompson – As heirloom produce gains a growing cult following among eaters, the more under-the-radar interest in heritage livestock breeds may see a resurgence, too. The first National Heirloom Exposition in California last month featured heritage farm animal breeds in addition to the fruits, veggies, and seeds that get foodies excited.
Chemical low
Sand & Dust - 10/10/2011.
By Nick Brooks – The Bou Craa mine in occupied Western Sahara is one of the world’s largest sources of phosphorus, a vital component of the fertilisers on which much of the world’s agriculture, and global food production and food security, depends. For some time there has been concern about our reliance on a finite supply of phosphorus, and the implications of this for agricultural productivity, food prices and nutrition, particularly in developing countries.
