Cooperation, not lawsuits, is the answer to nitrogen on the Central Coast

Are checkoffs really taking taxpayer dollars and giving them to agriculture?

The OFF Act suggests federal checkoff programs are simply a means for further consolidation of “industrial agriculture” and federal agricultural lobbying organizations. However, the structure of each checkoff belies that notion. Checkoff programs are federal marketing and research programs funded entirely by the producers of 22 commodities in the United ...

SB 389: New water law wastes time in the race to save a valuable resource

Water rights in California are split into pre- and post-1914 categories with pre-1914 and riparian rights given supremacy over post-1914 rights.

Learn how water legislation would affect CA farmers

Assembly Bills Would Upend Century of California Water Rights Management

Learn about new anti-livestock bill in Congress

Congressional legislation would give animal activists enforcement opportunities in checkoff programs

So, with all the redundancy of the OFF Act, what is the real thrust of this Congressional proposal? The coalition formed in support of the act gives a hint to what is really at its core: a foot in the door for animal activist groups to slowly force livestock producers ...

Colorado River ‘plan’ staves off federal interference, keeps water coming

The Colorado River supplies 4.4-million-acre feet of water to California every year with about 80 percent of that allocation being delivered to farms in the Imperial Valley. (An acre-foot is enough water to cover one acre of land with one foot of water or 326,000 gallons.) Earlier this week, California, ...

The best activism is the one that allows everyone to make their own dietary choices

Considering how much beef is consumed annually in the United States, it is odd to think about the amount of vitriol aimed at cattle production. Whether it is a story about the greenhouse gas emissions of cattle, the misunderstanding of animal breeding and care, or the anthropomorphism of animal rights ...
