Digest: Farm interns and cattle clones

January 18th, 2008 · 1 Comment · Digest

Green up the growing. K-State program in KC on Growing Growers puts apprentices on farms and promotes sustainable methods. This year includes a new focus on organic fruit production.

It is just like that other steak. Kansas rancher already selling semen from clones,(Washington Post, registration required) and offspring of cloned cattle are in the food stream.

Is this one related to the clones? The Kansas Bioscience Authority aims to save us from animal-borne diseases. The KC Star also reports on the initiative to protect the food supply (free registration).

Top of the stalk. Kansan leads National Association of Wheat Growers, and another leads the National Sorghum Producers.

Local flavor, national glory. Krause Dining of Lawrence gets tapped as one of the “Tastes to Try in ’08,” amusingly under the International Food Scene in Food & Wine Magazine. (Dear Lord, don’t let us become stylishly quaint.)

Going upscale. Boeuf du Kansas hits the menu.

Kansas City sets another food trend. OK, it’s a beverage trend, but we had fancy coffee at McDonald’s first, and everybody else will follow. (However did I miss it?)

People hungry in breadbasket.

Winter farmers markets in KC. Mostly meat and baked goods.

Taking aim at wild hogs. But not for lunch.
