Re: When Marketers Impose Restrictive Farm Practices

On the one hand, if I am approached by someone who is willing to pay me extra to do certain things, such as no growth hormone implants in our calves (which we do), or paying extra if I raise some non-GMO corn in an isolated field (I have one field 3+ miles from the nearest corn field), and I feel the extra $$$ is worth doing it, I see nothing wrong with that, and in fact have done that.

 

Now on the other hand, when some sort of regulation is forced down our throats, that really has nothing to do with food safety, or animal welfare, but is just some feel-good regulation imposed so some politician or bureaucrat can claim that they 'did something', I'm against that.
