Breezy Hill Farm Update Sep. 16, 2018

Posted 9/16/2018 9:38pm by Art Ozias.

            BREEZY HILL FARM WEEKLY UPDATE

  • We still have a few tubs of lard.  It has no preservatives.  It is $6/tub. 
  • We have two glass doors from a commercial refrigerator.  They are double walled, about 4 ft by 1 1/2  and would work well for a cold frame.  Free to the first person.
  • Ground beef is scheduled.  Pick up will the Saturday, Oct. 6 from 12 to 1 pm at Breezy Hill.  Last week we had an arm roast and this Sunday Debra had a corned brisket.  Both were excellent.  We can do some roasts and brisket with our latest ground beef harvest.  I will need to know who wants a roast or brisket.  They will be at the same price as the ground beef,  $5.50/#.  These will be on a first come basis.  Obviously, there are just so many roasts and brisket per animal.  If there are no requests for roast or brisket, they will be ground and included in the hamburger total.
  • We watched Farmegeddon this morning on Link TV.  I had watched this a couple of years ago and it was a stark reminder of just how bad government regulations on small local producers were and still are.  Some progress has been made, but there is still much to do.
  • Have just about finished pasture mowing in hopes of fall rains for stockpiling grass for winter grazing.  We need six to eight inches of rain.  Ponds have received no run off since Spring.

Attorney Peter C. Wright is a lawyer who has spent his entire career helping Monsanto and Dow avoid cleaning up their toxic pollution.

According to the New York Times, Wright, who spent 19 years at Dow, one of the world’s largest chemical makers, once described himself in a court deposition as “the company’s dioxin lawyer.”

Now, Trump wants to put Wright in charge of—guess what?—forcing companies like Monsanto and Dow to clean up their toxic pollution.

Wright has a long history of being on the wrong side of the chemical safety debate. One of his favorite defense strategies is to argue that dioxin, a known carcinogen and Monsanto and Dow pollutant, isn’t really as bad as the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) makes it out to be—even though scientists place dioxin (which often ends up in our food) “among the most toxic chemicals known to man.”

We have just two words: Fox. Henhouse.

Customer Comments. “I'm driving up to visit my family this Thanksgiving. I'd like a quarter please. Your beef is the best and I miss the taste. Texas beef just isn't as good. I'll have a large cooler and some dry ice to get me back to Texas”

*************************************************

Most recently, a multistate E. coli outbreak linked to romaine lettuce appears to have been caused by runoff from a nearby factory farm into a canal. Water from the canal was used to irrigate the lettuce

It's already been proven that CAFOs are a major source of water contamination throughout the U.S. As noted by the Arizona Department of Environmental Quality:6

"Nationwide and in Arizona, the potential for surface and ground water pollution exists through livestock facility discharge of manure-contaminated run off to natural waterways and through wastewater leaching to aquifers."

 


THAT'S IT FROM THE HILL FOR THIS WEEK.  ART AND DEBRA
