Thursday Roundup

The bottle calves are fed and the exchange student is on the bus, so it must be time for our morning roundup! I hope your Thursday treats you well, wherever in the Rural Republic you might be. Please let us know what you think, or if we're missing something we should be covering.

KRVN Rural Radio - Russia's grain ban showcases Egypt's love of bread - "...the world's largest wheat importer where half of the 80 million residents rely on subsidized bread to survive." The dominoes start to fall. - Vilsack: Estate tax won't hurt most farmers - He "thinks the estate tax will be restored," but "expects to see a large enough exemption to cover the 'vast majority' of farms and ranches in the country." Can we get that in writing?

The Guardian - Artificial meat? Food for thought by 2050 - "Leading scientists say meat grown in vats may be necessary to feed 9 billion people expected to be alive by middle of century" That, or Soylent Green.

BEEF magazine - Proposed GIPSA rule would set back modern beef industry - [opinion] "It’s Big Brother at a level most never thought would be proposed in America."

Kansas Liberty - Carnival games - Reflections from a Kansas grandfather following the county fair.
