PoultryCast update for June 23, 2010, How Will Changing Food Trends In North America Impact My Operation?

Comments from Truffle Media's Trent Fredenburg: After a recent trip to Chicago, I am reminded once again how great the distance is between consumers and the farm.

We need to establish education as one of our top priorities and work diligently to close this education gap that exists today. So I challenge each of us to do a little more to help consumers better understand our story of producing their food. Take a couple of minutes and share with me some of the steps that you have taken to help educate our consumers.
