Cooledge. True. Democrat leaders want nothing to do with curtailing voter fraud. Why? Because voter fraud is a predominantly Democrat tool.

The raid was "carried out by seven plainclothes officers" (and it sounds like additional officers who went to suspect's workplaces)? This certainly sounds like an excessive use (and by "use" I mean misuse) of police officers by Ardis -- especially for something like a Twitter account. How many officers are usually sent to arrest somebody for a non-violent offense? I can't help but think…

New president of the Illinois Pork Producers Association educates

2 months ago by Jim Dewey

Producers are continuing to try to educate consumers about how pigs are raised

Illinois Pork Producer Todd Dail is the newly elected president of the
Illinois Pork Producers Association (IPPA). In light of more and more buyers
requiring changes in housing of pigs, Dail said, they are continuing to try
to educate consumers about how pigs are raised and why certain methods are favored over others. "We're still trying to explain to consumers that the
reason we raise pigs the way we do is, it's better on the pigs," he said.
Raising pigs outside in weather like we have had this winter, Dail said "is
not only hard on the producers, it's hard on the pigs."

Dail noted that some of that consumer education is funded through the Pork
Checkoff. He said the IPPA participates in advertising and they put on
events to promote pork to consumers. On the producer side, Dail said, "We
fund projects for research to improve our production even better that it is
now."

Dail says there is still a market for farmers who produce a small number of
hogs on their farms, but he says it's "such a much smaller market that it
doesn't work well to feed the world." And even though some countries have
placed limits on U S pork because of the way it is produced, Dail says
exports prove the U S product is superior. He said, "I think it's just over
25 percent of the pigs that we raise in the U S get exported to other
countries.
