Expanded FDA jurisdiction and inspections of animal agriculture operations in the name of food safety continue to play in Washington. A few changes since the World Pork Expo don't lessen the potential seriousness of this issue as we talk with Dr Jen Greiner
From the Pork Academy at the World Pork Expo, Orlando Gil provides us with an interesting perspective on multicultural farm labor employment, reasons for immigration, and the barriers they encounter.
As the average age of farm operators continues to escalate, in spite of spiraling unemployment, Hispanics and other minorities are facing challenges that impact farm productivity. How are they engaging social issues and mainstream impressions and how does that impact your potential for hiring workers?
Gil examines a few of our options, such as high school students, immigration alternatives, and other issues worth considering.
