We have a question:
What will it take to scale up sustainable production in our region so that better meat — raised under more humane and environmentally sound practices — can become available for school children and hospital patients, for you and for me?
At Chicken and Egg, a panel of experts will explore the issue of antibiotics in meat production, using chicken as a case study, and dive deeply into the experience of local meat producers and buyers.
