So, as things have been circulating in the media recently, the state government of Michigan is proposing a law that makes raising heritage breed pigs illegal. Yes, you read that right, they only want the citizens of that state (and many more to come I am sure) to eat GMO hogs raised in CAFO's somewhere in this "great" land. I can't have vocalized my opinions any better than Carolyn Renee over at Krazo Acres. Sometimes, in order to speak your opinion, you have to back someone who just says it better than yourself. So here is her rant on pigs and the food chain in general. Included in here towards the beginning is a link to another fantastic blogger who explains the issue in full.
The fact that this is happening in Michigan, I fear for my state, which knocks on Michigan's door. What next? No more backyard chickens? No more victory gardens? Seriously... Somethings are just an opening act, and that is what I fear Michigan is doing.
