Abstract:

Farming in North America has become a "cash cow" for a handful of multinational corporations at the cost of the environment and rural culture. This program examines the growth of corporate factory agriculture, an industry that is capable of generating severe environmental, social, and cultural repercussions. Environmental activists and lawyers in North Carolina stress the need for a functional high-tech wastewater treatment plant to stop the pollution resulting from management techniques used by corporate owners of the hog industry. In addition, a community rallies in Canada to oppose building of a corporate feedlot they believe will threaten the future of a small, third-generation family farm.
