Is the USDA sustainable….

by David

….one of my favorite websites is the work of Paul and Gabe Brown…..holistic ranchers just outside Bismarck, North Dakota.  Recently they linked to an article in a Yale publication that does the best job I’ve seen so far of explaining the way Big Ag and Big Government are chasing their tails….trying to get ahead of Nature.

The problem is the darn weeds have unlimited research capability….not even Monsanto’s labs can keep up with them.  Incredibly, it’s a New York Times editorial board member who lectures our “smart guys”.  The article actually gives me some cause for hope!
