Peanut Butter Poses for Her Picture
The sow above is named Peanut Butter or PB for short. She’s from the Blackie line of sows and very sweet. She has a litter of piglets in the lower south field. Here she is under the shade of aspen trees which create a wonderful habitat for pigs and chickens. Enough light gets through that the grasses, clovers and other forages thrive yet they are protected from the hot mid-day sun.
On a note that many of us share a concern:
Whole Foods Market … announcing in March that by 2018, all products in its U.S. and Canadian stores must be marked to indicate if they contain genetically modified organisms.

Vermont is pushing legislation for GMO labeling to help consumers to know what they are consuming. Connecticut too. Many other states are moving this way. What we really need is the big retailers like Whole Foods, Walmart, Shaws, P&C, etc to require GMO labeling. rBGH/rBST in milk was eliminated this way. The market can make this work. Let the stores you buy from know what you want to see on labeling and that it will help to make you a customer. Businesses need your feedback to choose their path. The producers of GMO crops should not fear the limelight, they should demand it. People in other countries already have the right to know. So should we.
