Bureaucrat is moved to a new post

So why is that newsworthy you might wonder. Well, his new post is with the “Normal Farm Practices Protection Board”. Never knew there was such a thing? Join the club. Obviously someone has to be standing on guard for normal farm practices such as dairy farmers drinking their own raw milk from the bulk tank, wouldn’t you suppose.

Could it be Kirk Walstedt is just the man to do it?

Then there’s the practice of saving your seed and planting it again the next year. If you told someone 50 years ago that practice would someday be threatened, they’d have looked at you like you were nuts.

It’d be great to get further intel on how this board came to be and what it’s mandate really is. Anyone?

Read the story here, from Jim Romahn, on Agri 007.
