Hi all fans of our great Berkshire pork - this new Michigan DNR Order will affect all producers of "pastured pigs" - please read/watch this, and send an email to our Governor, the only one who can repeal this piece of bureaucratic nonsense, and ask for his support in protecting small family farms. If the "big pork" people, aided by the DNR, manage to stamp out heritage breeds like Berks and Mangalitsas that are pasture-raised, your choices will be limited to factory-farmed pork again. You can send your note to the gov using this info, provided by the folks at Bakers' Green Acres, a farm that raises Mangalitsa hogs in Michigan - they have been in the thick of this fight.
Contact Governor Rick Snyder by e-mail, Rick.firstname.lastname@example.org and/or phone, 517-335-7858.
Do not allow his office to direct you to the DNR.
The MDNR needs to stay off farms
The MDNR needs to repeal the Invasive Species Order.
This is not the Michigan Legislature’s fault, the “Invasive Species Order” was created by and is being implemented by the MDNR
