Finally, News That’s Fit To Print!
In case you missed it -- and HOTH knows you'll find it hard to believe -- a balanced story in The New York Times on sow housing!
Written by business reporter Stephanie Strom, the story featured Iowa pork producer Tom Dittmer and detailed the pros as well as the cons on individual sow housing. That Strom actually visited Iowa for the story is a victory in itself, since two other Times newsroom representatives declined invitations from NPPC to tour Midwest hog farms in recent years.
The question now is whether the notoriously anti-agriculture Times editorial page will take notice of Strom’s story and moderate its views on pork production.
HOTH is not holding its breath.
