This week, agriculture-related discussion has been abundant on our blog (see Nick’s post and Julie’s post). And, to continue the conversation, we’d like to share an interesting NPR article we read this week.
In “How Two Bitter Adversaries Hatched a Plan to Change the Egg Business,” reporter, Dan Charles, tells the story of how Gene Gregory, head of the United Egg Producers lobby, and Wayne Pacelle, president of the Humane Society, have joined forces to transform the poultry industry. Within agriculture, it’s difficult to imagine two individuals who would seemingly disagree more.
The story and some of the reactions to it are included below.
HSUS and United Egg Producers Join Forces
What do you think? Is this a good example of how opposing sides of the ag industry could unite to make positive changes? Or is it too idealistic?
