Rural Wisconsin Communities Battle Industrial Scale Hog Farms

Rural communities in Wisconsin are battling two proposed concentrated animal feeding operations (CAFOs) in their areas. These giant industrial scale hog farms pose grave threats to residents’ properties, local economies as well as surrounding air, land, and waterways.

What’s happening in Crawford County and Polk/Burnett counties is the subject of a new series by Real News Network and In These Times.

Max Alvarez with Real News Network, Hannah Faris with In These Times and community activist Forest Jahnke who is the Project Coordinator at the Crawford Stewardship Project join us to talk about what’s at stake.

FSTV’s Just Solutions features inspiring conversations with activists, community leaders, and others working to make our world a better place. We discuss the many challenges we are facing, while exploring the solutions emerging from the grassroots.
