A word from my inner agricultural policy geek

Yes, I do have one, and she thinks you might be interested in this AP article about the declining diversity of livestock. It's just one more reason to support small farmers who are working to keep heritage breeds alive. The porker in the photo is a Tamworth pig (a breed the article mentions) from the farm I blogged about the other day. The Drakes let their pigs run loose. The sight of the piggies scampering across the pasture in the company of goats and ducks is just about the cutest thing I have ever seen.

You're preaching to the choir.

[If it hadn't been so close to THE TOXIC ONES- blessed be they- I would NOT have thrown away full scholarship to Cornell Veterinary school, and would be a farm vet right NOW. The only regret I ever allow myself...]
