The industrial mode of agriculture isn’t necessarily the only way to farm.
Dr. William (Bill) Weida is President of the Socially Responsible Agricultural Project (sraproject.org).
He previously served for ten years as Director of the GRACE Factory Farm Project. He was born and raised in Idaho Falls, Idaho, and retired as a Professor of Economics and Business at The Colorado College, Colorado Springs, Colorado, where he specialized in regional economics, statistics, and econometric modeling. His lecture will address the economic, political, and health impacts of Confined Animal Feeding Operations (CAFOs), how and why we have deviated from conventional farming, and how we can reclaim American agriculture.
