Pork Farm Opposition

first_imgMany people want bacon on their burgers and ham for the holidays. Butnobody wants a pig in the parlor. And a Universityof Georgia economist says that not-in-my-backyard attitude poses areal threat to pork production in Georgia.”In the early 1980s, we had about 300,000 head of breeding stock,” saidJohn McKissick, an economistwith the UGA College of Agriculturaland Environmental Sciences. “Now we’re down to about 100,000 head.That’s not enough to support a processing facility that could sustain theindustry.”Hogs are still the No. 10 commodity in Georgia, with $168 million incash receipts in 1996. But production has steadily declined, especiallysince the 1996 closing of the Premium Pork processingplant in Moultrie, Ga.”Georgia producers now get $3 to $4 per hundredweight less for theirhogs than in other parts of thecountry. That’s because the hogs have to be shipped to the processors,”McKissick said. “And farmers here have to pay more for grain, which hasto be shipped in (mostly from the Midwest).”A new group of farmers, the Sunbelt Pork Cooperative, Inc., is exploringoptions for opening a newprocessing plant, McKissick said.The co-op hopes to process hogs grown not just in Georgia but in thesurrounding states. “But if Sunbelt opens a kill floor in Georgia,” hesaid, “we will have some expansion in pork production in the state.”Some proposed large hog farms in Taylor, Tattnall and Jenkins countieshave met vocal local opposition. Opponents of proposed 10,000- to 20,000-headhog farms argue that the farms’ÿ wastewould pollute local streams and groundwater supplies.The proposed large-scale farms aren’t related to the co-op’s effortsto build a processing plant, McKissick said. In fact, the proposed farmswould ship pigs out of the state, probably toMidwestern states, to be grown to size for slaughter.UGA engineer Mark Risse saidsuch large farms carry a greater risk of catastrophic failure fromhuge storms such as hurricanes. But the day-to-day waste managementis likely to be better.”We can design waste management systems that will protect surface waterand groundwaterquality,” Risse said. “It all depends on the operator, though. If waterquality problems arise froma hog farm, it’s because the operator isn’t managing the system properly.”Risse said that the same isn’t true of the smell.”If you have a big hog operation, you’re going to have an odor,” hesaid. “We have manyscientists at the university working on odor control. But we don’tpresently have a system designed to keep it from affecting air quality.The only answer now is distance.”Opponents of hog farms lately have been demanding huge distances. Theywant the farms in someother county, if not some other state. That’s not good for farmersor the state’s economy, McKissicksaid.”When you consider the uncertain future of some of our major products,particularly peanuts andtobacco, you can see how important it is to have some diversity inagriculture,” he said. “We needenterprises like pork production that aren’t land-based.”McKissick said the state needs to get back to the 300,000-head levelof the early ’80s. That wouldstill be only a third of the million-head level in North Carolina.”That’s the level the industry needs to support a processing plant,”he said. “That’s a level that canbe self-sustaining.”Interestingly, McKissick said expanding production to meet the needsof a processing plant wouldbe mainly in the form of the mid-size farms that draw little fire fromneighbors.”But the opposition to these proposed large-scale farms taints all ofhog production,” he said. “Itputs a damper on the industry’s efforts to rebuild.”last_img read more

Ole Miss Sells Out Season Tickets In Record Time

first_imgOle Miss Football Tickets are Sold Out.Ole Miss Tickets Sold OutThe Rebels are coming off their first nine-win football season since 2009 and the anticipation for the next chapter is apparent, as Ole Miss has sold out of season tickets in record time, according to Athletic Director Ross Bjork. Was just asked if I wanted to tweet this out first….I jumped at the chance. Thanks to our #OleMiss family! #WAOM pic.twitter.com/Rje3iHISjf— Ross Bjork (@RossBjorkAD) June 23, 2015Earliest (on record) we’ve sold out of @OleMissFB season tickets…….June 23. Expecting new sales record as well! pic.twitter.com/viVYZGn9el— Ross Bjork (@RossBjorkAD) June 23, 2015 After defeating conference opponents like Alabama and Texas A&M during its 7-0 start to the season, it’s easy to see why Ole Miss is excited about the glaring support from its fans.The Rebels didn’t close the 2014-15 season out as strong as they had hoped, losing four of their last six games, but that’s not going to keep the always-proud fan base down. And one can only assume this kind of enthusiasm will pour over into The Grove and then Vaught-Hemingway Stadium come September 5, when the Rebels open up the season at home against UT Martin.last_img read more

Neville Progressive but not a successfull season for United

first_imgManchester United have more than certainly progressed from where they were last season, but it is still a failure since they did not win the Premier League, thinks Red Devils legend Gary Neville.They finished 19 points behind arch-rivals City in the second place as they lost 13 of the total 38 games they played in this campaign. However, this is four places better than the previous season and were able to qualify for the Champions League only because they won the Europa League.“In the league, which is where everybody wants to be measured, you have to say that second is progression from where Manchester United have been, but it’s not a successful season for Manchester United when you don’t win the league,” Neville said, according to Manchester Evening News.harry maguire, manchester UnitedMaguire says United need to build on today’s win George Patchias – September 14, 2019 Harry Maguire wants his United teammates to build on the victory over Leicester City.During the summer, Harry Maguire was referred to as the ultimate…“That’s the measure of the club and has been for 60, 70, 80 years, it has to be the league title you are measured by.”“To keep winning trophies would show they are still a club that are winning things and keeping that winning mentality. Manchester City have had the most outstanding of seasons and Jose Mourinho measures himself by title wins, not finishing second. Manchester United have had a good season in the league in finishing second but it has been inconsistent and they have dipped at times,” Neville went on to add.last_img read more

Eriksen admits Kane is under pressure to deliver

first_imgHarry Kane is under pressure to deliver in every game according to his Tottenham team-mate Christian Eriksen.Kane failed to deliver for Spurs in their last two Premier League games, despite breaking his deadlock in August.The striker has faced criticism this season for his poor scoring form and there have been calls from different pundits to rest the player after a hectic World Cup campaign.“Everyone expects him to score three goals every game,” Eriksen told the Independent.“As a team we know we have to feed him, but in a team that is losing it is very difficult to score goals, even one that keeps creating chances.“I know Harry wants to score more, and so do the rest of the team. At the end of the day, it doesn’t matter who is scoring and who is not scoring. It’s about winning games.”Victor Wanyama, Tottenham Hotspur, Premier LeaguePochettino admits Wanyama remains in his Spurs plans Manuel R. Medina – September 14, 2019 Kenyan international, Victor Wanyama, was the protagonist of a summer transfer saga, but in the end, he is set to stay at Tottenham Hotspur.But Eriksen has brushed aside fatigue claims as they resume their Champions League campaign away to Serie A giants Inter on Tuesday.“We are not tired after the World Cup. Everyone has had near enough the same break,” Eriksen added.“Of course we are unfortunate we had so many players going so far in the tournament, which meant they started their pre-season later.“But our performances have had nothing to do with tiredness. And personally, I haven’t felt tired.“There is no better place to put things right than at the San Siro. It’s the perfect stadium to play in.“And there will be no better way to start a Champions League campaign than with a win at the San Siro. It’s going to be an exciting game.”last_img read more
