“The sophisticated CAFO industry is highly dependent on cheap feed and avoiding environmental regulations — pushing farmers, animals and the earth to their limits.”
MRCC along with our allies at the Campaign for Family Farms and the Environment were honored to be able to organize this opportunity for MRCC member and farmer Doug Doughty to testify before congress about the negative impacts that corporate factory farms have on our local communities, economies and natural resources. MRCC works every day to amplify the voices of farmers and rural Missourians because we know how much we need fair markets for farmers, clean water for our citizens, good jobs in our communities, and healthy food for all Americans.
