Thune: USDA too much hat, and not enough cattle

From The Mitchell Daily Republic:

According to Thune?s weekly column distributed Friday, USDA sent an in-house ?Greening Headquarters Update? newsletter Monday encouraging employees to participate in ?Meatless Mondays? while dining in USDA?s cafeterias.

The newsletter went on to attack the production of meat in the U.S., Thune wrote, by claiming that meat production has ?a large environmental impact? and that an employee should ?help yourself and the environment? by not eating meat.

?South Dakota farmers and ranchers deserve an ally in the Department of Agriculture, not an adversary,? wrote Thune, R-S.D.

Read it all here.

Seriously? Obama’s USDA was advocating Meatless Mondays?  Amazing.

    Well, if the US Dept of Agriculture is going to be anti farming, then it should be eliminated.
