“Are there models for livestock production that support both farmers and communities? Today, we’re going to explore the complex nature of relationships between farmers and nearby communities and the impact of industrial agricultural practices, such as CAFOs, [which] stands for concentrated animal feeding operations, on those relationships. Our guests today are policy advocate Sarah Carden with Farm Action and community organizer Monica Brooks from the Maryland State Commission for Environmental Justice and Sustainable Communities.”

To watch the trailer of a new documentary, “The Smell of Money,” which documents the price being paid for the world’s pork by raising hogs in CAFOs in North Carolina, go to:
