CALLING ALL FARMERS!

I am working with Michael Murphy of “What in the World are they Spraying?” to determine if changes in weather patterns have affected the way you have to farm.

Would you please answer the following questions, and/or forward them on to a farmer you know?

  • Have you and/or anyone you know come under pressure due to changes in weather patterns and been pressured to switch to genetically engineered seeds?
  • Have you or anyone you know been forced to sell land for a fraction of its worth due to floods or drought?

If you have something to say, now is the time to do it. This is your opportunity to tell us what you know about Monsanto’s takeover of all seed production, crops and farmland as it has applied to you and/or any other farmers you know.

You can contact me by responding to this post, or by e-mailing me at barb@farmwars.info. Thanks in advance for your help exposing these thugs.

    To answer the 2 questions you presented…Weather is a major factor in any farm opperation, it was not a factor in my technology decision in my seed purchases. I have been not been adversly affected by drought or floods to the point I needed to sell land.
    The GMO decision for me is based upon economics, environmental safety and marketing opportunities. In all the years of feeding livestock, I have yet to see any proof of reduced nutrition or reduced animal health and performance based upon the inclusion or exclusion of gmo. If gmo’s cuased sterility in livestock, don’t you think we would have a livestock industry that would go extinct?

    For Dana Waldrop, There is non-medicated feed for baby chicks at http://www.californiahatchery.com and http://www.mypetchicken.com but do not know where youii might need it shipped and if the cost would be prohibitive.

    I sure wish more farmers would rise up and say “no more” but I think many are afraid of the Monsanto Gestapo. However if enough got together and boycotted the big seed companies they might have a chance. Our future as human beings depends on it. GMO’s have been proven to be nasty little things, shadowy genes lurking in our food. Doesn’t common sense just tell you that programming pesticide into a gene in a plant you are going to eat is wrong? You can’t get it out and you can’t wash it off. Things like roundworm genes in potatoes would make you not want to eat them if you knew. But they won’t let us know what is in our food and that is just plain wrong. These stories about the animals also pertain to us. The unleashing of genetically engineered alfalfa is a great travesty so that now the animals that we eat will have eaten genetically engineered food. I will expect some hang up calls now as I get them every time I post something like this and I am logging them all.

    I’d like to grow some non-GMO corn except that if I do – I can not save my seeds for next years crop. GMO seeds can contaminate my corn too easily. There are chicken houses on the other side of my property. I know those are fed GMO feed. Corn falls from the trucks and grows along the road and along his driveway so it would surely contaminate any heirloom corn I try to plant.

    Also having a heck of a time finding non-medicated feed for baby chicks. I can find unvaccinated chicks, just can’t find any food for them. :(

    When they are older, I will plant the food they’ll eat. I should be able to do that and save some for replanting next year. But with neighbors contaminating seeds and the entire food chain…not exactly doable. So I really can’t afford to plant corn and buy new seeds every year. And that is just how the industry wants it to be. Their lobbyist insure it.

  5. Thanks for sharing this, Irene. I had an experience with animal feed. I found out that my supposed “local producer” of corn was merely a middle man who contracted with big grain conglomerates and repackaged the grain and sold it as local. Well, it turned out to be GMO. The geese that I was feeding were fed that for one winter. They got aggressive, and instead of laying dozens of eggs, only laid a few, only two of which actually hatched. The babies were deformed and died shortly after hatching. The next season I quit the GMO corn and let them free range. They recovered and the laying cycle went back to normal, and we had a ton of normal babies. The animals can recuperate if they are minimally exposed – that is the good news.

    I started this farm with my own money and don’t take gambling loans so nobody forced me to use anything I didn’t go buy first. That said; the guy who sells me my feed neglected to say that the pig grower was GMO and I lost my bloodlines because after three years all the pigs were sterrill. No babys , no pigs. The pigs were aso mutant, having pale fatty livers and queer smelling insides. We were so freeked out about the pigs we tried feeding it to the dogs. They liked it for a day but began refusing it after a few meals. I put it out in the forrestry to see if wildlife would have any and there it sits to this day, all dessicated and nasty after sitting on a stump for 2 years. Round up ready soya and corn mix as a sole feed is a bad idea.
