Give me a break. With the help of USDA Secretary Tom Vilsack, the industry is desperately trying to fit the square peg of animal agriculture into the round hole of sustainability. Even though it's not a good fit, at least have the quiet acquiescence of the mainstream environmental community and locavore groups, so they don't have to bend quite so far backward to convince the public otherwise. If the public actually knew the full cost of their products, the industry would be forced to pull itself up by its bootstraps, as is so often the advice of its conservative apologists. But with the receipt of $38 billion in annual government handouts already, who can blame them for coming back to the public feeding trough for more? Those poor guys. I'm so distraught, now I need a sympathy support group.
