Hay Now — It’s Boycott Time: Land O’Lakes, This Means You!

2 Comments

By Citizens for Safe Food and Feed

Farm Wars

By now you’ve heard how President Obama and his Monsanto Administration have plowed through approvals of three more genetically engineered products, including GE alfalfa.  Well, here’s something else you should know:

To produce its Round-Up Ready Alfalfa seeds, Monsanto partnered with a company called Forage Genetics International, which is a wholly owned subsidiary of Land O’Lakes dairy co-op. That’s right, Land O’Lakes stands to make a fortune from polluting our food supply with untested and unlabeled GMOs.

To protest, you could sign one of the many petitions going around that will likely just be ignored.  But there’s another way to show your disapproval of genetically engineered Round-Up Ready Alfalfa:  Boycott all Land O’Lakes products — its butter, cheese, eggs, speads, margarine, seasonings, creams, cocoa and cappuccino mixes, sour cream and milk.  All of them.

You have the power to economically punish Land O’Lakes — the owner of Forage Genetics, Monsanto’s partner in crime — for its role in polluting the food chain with untested and unlabeled GMOs, increasing the use of toxic glyphosate herbicide, and potentially destroying the organic beef and dairy feed market by loudly refusing to support Land O’Lakes with your dollars.

Tell all your friends to go to all the supermarkets in their area and let the check-out clerks know that they’re boycotting Land O’Lakes products until they are out of the GMO business, loud enough for other shoppers to hear.  And next, stop by the store manager’s desk and tell him about the boycott.

Send Land O’Lakes and other companies a clear message:  HAY you — We’re FED UP with GMOs in our food supply!

And to make sure Land O’Lakes knows why its sales are down, contact its president and CEO Chris Policinski and let him know you won’t be buying Land O’Lakes products anymore because you don’t want genetically engineered food or animal feed:

S.510 Fake Food Safety: Forcing the collapse of domestic agriculture

Instead, FDA, just as the USDA, is pulling out all the stops in its efforts to terrorize and harass domestic producers and suppliers, and to end anything but industrialized corporate agriculture.  After all, these corporations keep the FDA and USDA awash in funds.”

__________________________________________________

If food safety were the real issue…we would close down the USDA and FDA corporations immediately.  S.510 is not intended to, and will not do anything other than stifle economic growth, kill off the domestic agricultural sector and hand that sector over to corporate predators.   

S.510,  just as the CLEAR Act, Cap & Trade, and a host of other offensive pieces of legislation is nothing more than a system of fees, fines and royalties meant to generate revenue while at the same time forcing individuals to keep records intended to be used for no other purpose than compiling a criminal case against themselves.  These records can be seized on the whim of the “secretary” who can at his/her leisure, decide that they “believe” you represent a risk: no evidence needed.

Just as the appointment of Michael Taylor, the Monsanto hired gun, to the post of “food czar” in the White House was no coincidence, neither is the pandering to Monsanto and other multi-national corporations intent upon owning and controlling food prodution and supply in the US in the text of S. 510. 

Both the USDA and FDA were created using the Administrative Procedures Act (APA) of 1946.  Even if this act were constitutional, the federal government is precluded from entering into agriculture as it is not in the enumerated powers of the federal government.  Agriculture is non-positive Code & Tile (7) and cannot be codified into law as it is a right reserved to the states.  Creating fictional public service agencies, which are in reality privately chartered corporations, held by the federal government to by-pass Constitutional restraints, on the federal government makes them no less unlawful.

Contrary to comments from various national organizations and groups, the last thing we need to see happen is the expansion of power and reach of either the USDA or, the FDA.

Both of these corporate federal agencies have a long history of harming the public while deferring to corporate contracted partners who make sure both agencies are profitable even if the public is harmed.  

On the other hand, it is no surprise to see national food organizations of all kinds jumping on the bandwagon to support this coup, hoping, I guess, that if they throw the rest of us under the bus they might be able to secure special treatment for themselves.  The organics producers did. More

WICFA: The promotion and preservation of unregulated direct farmer-to-consumer trade

Leave a comment

Hello WICFA Friends and Members:
 
We have some updates on our website that might be of interest to you.  Please browse through our Raw Milk page and our Honey page to see what is new.
 
Read the Iowa raw milk bill and see why it is the kind of legislation that we need to put before our Assembly and Senate.  It is fair to all producers and consumers and is completely aligned with WICFA’s mission statement of the promotion and preservation of unregulated direct farmer-to-consumer trade that fosters the availability of locally grown and home-produced food products.
 
The updates on Wisconsin honey legislation include some correspondence between Senator Russ Decker and our VP, Paul M. Griepentrog as well as a link to some good information on the origins of Codex. 
 
Enjoy and I hope you find the updates useful!
 
Thanks,

WICFA STATEMENT OF OPPOSITION TO SB 434 & AB 628

Feb 5th,(c) 2010

Hello WICFA Friends and Members,

We have completed the revision of our statement of opposition to the “Raw Milk Bill”, SB 434 and AB 628. Please read it through and give careful consideration to the points that are raised. You can find a link to the bills on our raw milk page to read them for yourself. The opposition statement is attached to this email and is available on the website as well.

If you agree that we should not take whatever can be achieved instead of standing firm and holding out for a bill that is beneficial to all raw milk producers, no matter what the size of their operation, then print off some copies of our opposition statement and distribute them to friends, family, and your neighbors.

We must let our representatives in Madison hear from us as well. Please contact your assembly person and senator to let them know that they should not vote in favor of the “Raw Milk Bill”. We need to make sure that our voices are heard.

Do not let our food choices be regulated by DATCP and corporate interest.

“If the people let government decide what foods they eat and what medicines they take, their bodies will soon be in as sorry a state as are the souls of those who live under tyranny” Thomas Jefferson

Sincerely,

Clifford J. Cordell II

Report shows less beef production, growing exports

Leave a comment

www.naisSTINKS.com

Editors note: The USDA and ag media can carefully document history with numbers.  It is the job of each ranch survivor to use the data to make profitable projections . Although these numbers are probably correct, here is how it will shake out:

1) The US has imported more beef than exported for the last 21 years.

2) Although data shows more beef is imported (+$2,000,000,000) than is exported, a reducing inventory of beef production has had no resolve in USDA and BEEF CHECK OFF efforts to increase US exports. The unasked question is “Who does the US buy beef from for export sales when the nation has not produced enough beef in 21 years to feed the nation?”

3) No extra expense is necessary for US producers to implement NAIS when exports are proven to be of no value to the US producer.  Any country that thinks US should do mandatory NAIS will not be able to buy any US beef shortly.  There won’t be any extra available.

4) US beef export will be history within 3 years.  Check the data and watch. 

5) The Beef Check Off money should be used totally to promote a US market to increase competition with vegetarian promotions. Darol Dickinson
