Another reason to know your farmer

This article covers another example for why it is important to know the farmer that raises your meats,  know how they do things,  and be able to trust them.  Most,  virtually all chicken and pork in the stire today was raised on a constant diet of antibiotics.  Why?  Antibiotics do not increase yields.  Period.  They do minimize death and losses from horrid unsanitary living conditions. So.. .. antibiotics allow saving money by breaking nature's sanitation laws, leaving animals in cheap,  deadly conditions,  then keep them as live and growing with constant  my medicine. Do you want to buy meat from an animal raised where it would be sick and die without constant medicine?  It does matter!
