22 Investigates: US Farmland At Risk

By: NBC15 – November 9, 2023

“As much land as we’ve lost in the U.S., we’ve made up for it in yields, or the amount of crop harvested per acre. As we increase scarcity, there becomes a premium. You have to bid against other uses of the land. So, if you want to keep it in agriculture production, you have to forego those gains you would get in some other use.”

Consumers Adapting To Keep Meat in Their Diets

By: National Hog Farmer – November 14, 2023

“Since the MDM survey began, there has not been a persistent change in the self-declared diet away from regularly consuming animal products.

By: Civil Eats – November 14, 2023

By: Oklahoma Farm Report – November 16, 2023
