THAT TIME WHEN... Travellers Choice members delivered life-saving cheer







Let's get behind & support this great initiative. The pushback from the animal harming industry is strong but we have the truth on our side. (Text shared with permission of the original poster).

Like… what? 

Farmers are stunned to find that their chicks are actually masquerading as ducklings?

Is that what this is saying?

If so, they must be pretty lame farmers, because that duckling isn’t even doing a very good job at hiding the fact that it’s a duckling and not a young chicken! 

The future is bright for animals but we have to speak for them

‪The despicable cruelty and violence of animal agriculture has been seen and heard by millions and will continue to spread, and we won’t stand for it. Us consumers are smart about our choices in 2019! We won’t pay for cruelty products when we don’t have to. Veganism is the truth!‬

Shutdown tests farmers’ loyalty as Trump visits their annual convention

Donald Trump‘s visit to the American Farm Bureau Federation’s annual convention comes at an awkward time, as farmers and ranchers begin to feel the pinch of the partial government shutdown.

The president was set to deliver remarks Monday afternoon before an overwhelmingly friendly audience of members of the country’s largest farm group. But with the longest shutdown in U.S. history now in its 24th day, local Farm Service Agency offices have been shuttered for weeks, locking out farmers from getting loans and other help with their operations.

Other key Agriculture Department programs remain on ice, including rural housing loans, USDA data reports that can sway commodity trading, implementation of new farm bill initiatives and trade-relief payments for farmers who haven’t already applied for aid. Meanwhile, Trump’s trade turmoil hasn’t been helping farmers, either.

“We have farmers that have loans with the FSA,” said Randy Poskin, a corn and soybean grower from central Illinois who voted for Trump. “If they can’t do that business, that’s going to create problems.”

Poskin said the administration’s record so far has been “a mixed bag.”

Flood defences: how willow proved to be a natural defender |

 Cumbrian farmers who planted willow for a Swedish paper mill say the crop kept floods at bay.

One December night three years ago, more rain fell over Cumbria than ever recorded before. Simon Peet’s farm in Langwathby, near Penrith, was one of 600 across the county that took a battering. Twenty of his Herdwick sheep drowned when the River Eden burst its banks, up to 4km of fencing was destroyed and 5,000 tons of gravel from the river ended up in one of his fields. The repair bill was £38,700.

Twenty-five miles up the road, by the River Derwent near Keswick, Steven Clark, a sheep farmer, was bracing himself for the worst after Storm Desmond. But while nearby bridges had collapsed and the army had been called in to help 5,500 people flooded out of their homes, Clark’s farm in the village of Braithwaite was fine. The year before he had been persuaded to take part in an experimental project with a paper mill in Workington, which involved planting 28 acres of willow crop. He is convinced it saved his land.
