Welcome to European Tribune. It's gone a bit quiet around here these days, but it's still going.

Yes, and this kind of farming would hopefully also stop this nonsense trucking around of our food. I do not know how it is in the US, but here in Europe it is possible for i.e. cattle be shipped from the North to Italy for the slaughtering and then the meat being send to say Hungary for being cut in to pieces and then being send to a third country for emballage and then finally to return to it's origin country to be sold. Absolute nonsense in my way of thinking. Well, hopefully oil prices will stop this practice soon anyway.

I totally agree, Fran. We should be producing quality foodstuffs for local/regional consumption. Apart from any other consideration (the amount of fraud that goes on trucking livestock and meat around, for example), it's simply a criminal waste of energy transporting food over long distances.
