Wanda Patsche - Debunking Rolling Stone's "Belly of the Beast"Published by on
To the dismay of the animal agriculture world, on December 10th, Rolling Stone published a feature titled "Animal Cruelty is the Price We Pay for Cheap Meat" that went viral to over 3.3 million Rolling Stone followers, written by Paul Solotaroff. Videos and content were provided by Mercy for Animals, an animal rights group that has been causing media sensationalism across the United States and even more recently in Minnesota.
The unfortunate aspect of this is that the article is strewn with exactly that - twists on facts and misinformation which puts animal agriculture in a bad light. Many have spoken against the article, pointing out true facts and giving scientific information as opposed to working on the sensationalism side. One such fantastic article was written by Wanda Patsche of Minnesota Farm Living. Join us from 12:30 to 1 p.m. as we break down the truth and the lies of the Rolling Stone article.
The goal of Wanda Patsche and Minnesota Farm Living is to "give an accurate picture of today’s farms and rural Minnesota living by telling my story. With only 2% involved in farming, there is a huge disconnect between consumers and those that produce their food."
According to Patsche, "I want to do my part in bridging that gap. I love to talk about farming. Feel free to ask any type of question about farming or rural life."
