Hey, They Know Their Pork- Good NRO piece on a farm bill ammendment which would bar meat packers from "owning, controlling, or feeding livestock" more than 14 days prior to slaughter. However, it takes Dave Juday until two paragraphs from the end to point out that the controlling function would likely bar meat packers from making future contracts to buy animals. That would hurt the farmers on the other side of the trade by increasing their risks. Sen. Tim Johnson was the sponsor of the amendment- get a copy of this piece to John Thune's campaign committee and let the attack ads begin.
