PoultryCast update for October 13, 2010, Why Do People Think I'm An Animal?

A couple of interesting stories which impact our industry in direct ways are available for your listening. Glynn Tonsor, K-State, reviews data looking at media stories which show our industry in a negative light and how our consumers react at the meat case. The effort to quantify what has been in question will also provide an economic case for developing programs and procedures to further limit inappropriate activities.

We also look at the stimulus package as it affects small business. The Center for Agricultural Law and Taxation will provide some guidance. You may want to check out that offering to insure you're not leaving money on the taxman's table this year.
