Outsourcing the cowboy

(Friday, Oct. 15, 2004 -- CropChoice news) -- A FOOD CHAIN RELEASE FROM METROFARM.COM:
Once the symbol of strength and self-determination, the American cowboy is now riding off into the sunset of the New World Order. At least, so say some!

This Saturday at 9AM Pacific, the Food Chain with Michael Olson hosts Montana rancher Gilles Stockton and California stockman Jim Warren for a conversation about the outsourcing of American cowboys and ranchers.

Topics include a brief history of the American beef industry; a look at how that industry came to be dominated by 3 industrial giants; and a discussion about why today’s ranchers think they are being chased off the range.
