that's at farm level, picking out the 'faults', and where it leads. he's not professional, does a good job of putting his case across, to the USA, knock it if you like, but better than a lot of crap on the net hereBut what's the message ?
He starts off talking about the concentration of market share.
Then talks about country of origin labeling in 'the grocery store', ie Walmart.
Then talks about the benefits of local food.
Then goes back to country of origin labeling.
Does he see Walmart - 26% of US food retailing - as part of the problem, or part of the solution ?
Seems to me he is as muddled in what he wants as the average farmer this side of the pond.

the publics eyes glaze over at long reports, he tells it, as he sees it, in a way the public understand. They have no understanding of 'the goodmans' of this world, nor would they be interested. Very common mistake, long lengthy, detailed reports, public neither read or understand them. Simple message, correctly put, will achieve far more sympathy/understanding than detailed reports, however accurate they are.
why on earth would you want more beef farmers to watch, and discuss ? If they don't know what the problems are, they shouldn't be farming.
on reflection, I might agree with you, that many don't fully realise the trade. On abattoirs, USA meat producers, supply a very standard sized animal, leading to massive cost savings, at cutting. Here the opposite.that's my point, I guess: I don't think they do know what the problems are. Or more pertinently, they don't know what the answers are.
on everything else I think we are in agreement.
Is why you should support local farmers.
Meat packing plants are hotbeds of infection for COVID 19 because they don't pay sick pay, but they do pay staff a $500 bonus to come into work even if they are sick. It is hard to believe that this is legal and it is certainly not moral.
