PLEASE join me in vocal protest of this

http://news.yahoo.com/hsus-president-wayne-pacelle-announces-candidacy-board-seat-164649808.html

Please go and read this announcement.  It is fairly factual if totally in support of HSUS being involved in your meat supply system.  Apparently, HSUS already is part owner in Tyson Foods.

BUT you can just about count on bacon becoming less and less available and costs rising all the time, with HSUS messing in agriculture.

So, if you’re planning to embrace vegetarian living and growing your own garden, please dismiss this plea.

 

Otherwise, please sharpen your pencils and write to local newspapers and media, TO TYSON FOODS, and to anybody and everybody you can think of in protest of this vegan agenda, animal rights activism leader being involved in Tyson Food management.

Thank you for your consideration.

Eggciting News

Just wondering how many of my friends buy ‘free range’ eggs? At some points in time when we did not have hens in the barnyard, I have bought them… but i really didn’t see much difference than regular store bought. After enjoying my farm fresh eggs I began wondering what “free range” meant… I figured mine must be free range… they spend most of the day scratching and pecking in the yard… makes sense right? WRONG… the federal guidelines say to be free range they must not be caged… OK that makes sense… and they must each have 1 1/2 sq ft per hen… WHAT??? a hen sitting takes up nearly a square foot on her own… So you put hens in these huge chicken houses, where they can “free range” (and peck on each other which is what confined chickens do, that is why they developed the cage system)… that just doesn’t make sense!!! what is “free” about living in a chicken house with thousands of other chickens??? If you must buy eggs in the store, look for “pasture raised” these hens actually live OUTSIDE…they have grass and bugs to eat and SUNSHINE! Pasture raised hens lay eggs with as much as 6 times the vitamin D compared to “free range” they are lower in fat, and higher in Omega3s… You can literally see the difference in Pasture raised eggs, the yolks are ORANGE, not pale yellow, and the taste and texture are worlds apart. Did you know that the eggs from the store can already be a MONTH old before they hit the shelves???? So if you get the chance, go to your local farmer and try some real farm fresh eggs, you wont believe the difference!
