Feeding consumers with what they want to hear

Food With recent national media reports painting grim pictures of the dairy industry and the use of antibiotics in farm animals, it seems the agriculture community has become a serious target in media circles run by the likes of CBS Evening News Correspondent Katie Couric.

unfortunately she is sure to make an impact on consumers choices.
