GO Chickens

Want to help children in an innovative way? Buy a chicken! For $10 you can purchase a chicken to supplement the diet of the kids in Haiti. The children in GO Project’s partner-led villages need protein supplementation in their diets, so we set up poultry farms, businesses, in Haiti that hire and train local farmers who need work. We then turn to you to “buy to give.” With a $10 tax deductible donation, we send a purchase order for a chicken, which goes to feed the children and in turn helps provide local jobs. Give a chicken today, and buy to give, at www.thegoexchange.org!

Grass Based Health: Turning the Food Pyramid Upside Down. Q&A

Conventional wisdom, when it comes to human nutrition, tells us that we should be eating a low-fat diet, with restricted consumption of red meat. This advice became the official recommendation of the United States government in the late 1970’s. Peter Ballerstedt will introduce evidence that the fat-is-bad hypothesis was wrong, and the impact the growing awareness of this can have on animal agriculture.

Peter has an extensive background in forage production, utilization, and forage-based livestock production systems. He was the forage extension specialist at Oregon State University from 1986 until 1992. His recent personal experiences led him to study human diet and health. What he’s learned doesn’t agree with advice we’ve been given for the past 30 years or more. This new understanding, combined with his forage background, has given him an interest in local, sustainable food production systems. His knowledge, enthusiasm, and speaking style will provide an entertaining and informative presentation. Visit Pete’s blog at http://grassbasedhealth.blogspot.com/

Grass Based Health – Food for Thought

“Grass Based Health Food for Thought.” Peter Ballerstedt, PhD.
A discussion of the difference between the official dietary guidelines (and the “conventional wisdom” they’ve informed) and what the science has, in fact, shown regarding the importance of animal protein and animal fat in the human diet. The impact of the official dietary guidelines, and the scientific findings, upon animal agriculture is discussed. Visit http://grassbasedhealth.blogspot.com/ for more information.
