It’s time for another edition of the Weekly Round Up! Here’s what’s on the docket for this week:
- Ever wonder what happens to milk after it leave the farm and before it gets to your refrigerator? Well, if you do, take a look at the this Michigan State University article to get all of your questions answered. It covers all steps — and hopefully all of your questions!
- And speaking of milk…
- This article, from BEEF Magazine, which talks about Wendy’s stance on antibiotic use in food animals. Of note, this statement from Dennis Hecker, senior vice president of quality assurance for Wendy’s: “At Wendy’s, we have an opportunity and a desire to care for our customers and employees while also promoting the health and welfare of the animals that provide our food. Our goal is to work with our supply partners to refine, reduce, and replace antibiotic therapy through their judicious use and by exploring animal management practices that do not rely on medically important antibiotics to increase production yields.” They sure have a different take on handling the situation than other fast food chains (I’m lookin’ at you, Subway.).
- This, because you may need to know it for a game of trivia at some point.
- And this post, from Holly Spangler, which is oh so moving and beautiful. Farmer or not, you’ll find meaning in this.
