Corn on the Crisis

The ever-increasing price of corn for poultry production and other animal farming is a mega-media affair. Producers are modifying their business activities dramatically. By modification, we mean cutting down on production. A recent article entitled The End of Cheap Meat by Solve Climate's Sangamithra Iyer touches on this emerging issue.

This week, we've learned of the closure of a couple of turkey processing plants owned by Cargill. Some of the production activities will be diverted to Californian facilities in the next few months.

As Charlie Brown says, good grief!
