Jolley: 5 minutes with Clay Pope and the magic of YouTube

I didn’t see Clay Pope’s heart-to-heart with President Obama when it was first posted on YouTube. I discovered the now famous video when I read Timothy Egan’s New York Times Opinionator Blog last week. The title, “Hix Nix Climate Fix,” offended me but it was a clever re-use of one of the most famous headlines in newspaper history. FULL STORY »

Jolley: Will sequestration force the sky to fall?

I woke up Saturday morning, fearing the first day of sequestration, remembering that it rhymes with unpleasant things like castration. I thought I would check Facebook before I peeked outside to see if the sky was falling. Lots of people get up before I do so I was looking for an early weather report from some of my rancher friends.

Jolley: Five minutes with sequestering the meat industry

Sequestration is an ugly specter that has been haunting us for months like a hoard of brain dead zombies. No matter what is said about the dangers of sequestration or the noble but empty pronouncements by our elected officials, it just won’t die.

Jolley: Five Minutes with Michele Payn-Knoper and the food fight

Jolley: Five minutes with Wayne Pacelle and HumaneWatch

There are two organizations that never back down from a fight: The Humane Society of the United States and HumaneWatch. Of course the entire reason for the existence of that second group is to keep an eye on the first group. FULL STORY »

Jolley: Darrel Sweet – ranching California’s wine country

Ranching is almost always a family business, sometimes stretching across several generations. The Sweet Ranches, operated by Cattlemen’s Beef Board (CBB) member Darrel Sweet and his wife, Karen, go back five generations with a sixth and seventh waiting in the wings. FULL STORY »

Jolley: Has rural America become a political afterthought?

The Associated Press quoted Agriculture Secretary Tom Vilsack’s assessment about American agriculture during his recent speech at a forum sponsored by Farm Journal. It’s “becoming less and less relevant,” he said. FULL STORY »

Jolley: HumaneWatch comes out swinging, HSUS comes out slinging

Meatingplace published a story about the Humane Society of the United States complaining to the USDA’s Office of the Inspector General that the National Pork Board (NPB) has used federal checkoff dollars to support the National Pork Producers Council’s lobbying efforts. FULL STORY »
