Crawford Stewardship Project is grateful for the generous support of the Wisconsin Community Fund.
Thank you to Organic Valley for their generous contribution to our silent auction in February 2013.
"CAFOs are only profitable because so much of the cost and damage is externalized onto the environment, neighbors and wildlife. The monitoring, supervision, clean-up, restitution, fines are not happening, thus the true cost of CAFOs never find the way onto the balance books." Talking point from the CAFO Conference.
