NEW COOKING OIL FOR KFC: On Monday, October 30, Kentucky Fried Chicken announced that it would replace partially hydrogenated soybean oil “with a type of soybean oil that does not contain trans fat” at its 5,500 restaurants. Of course, this highly processed, polyunsaturated oil, full of free radicals and toxic break-down products, will be as bad as or even worse than partially hydrogenated soybean oil loaded with trans
fats. We have it on good authority that KFC has received over 2700 calls on this issue since Monday, most of them negative about the new oil. There does not seem to be a way to email KFC about this subject from their website, www.kfc.com, but you can call them at 866-664-5696 to voice your objection to the new cooking oil. Urge them to use stable, healthy, traditional saturated fats like tallow, lard and palm oil.
MILK SHARE OPPORTUNITY: a grass-based mid-west dairy operation is seeking a farmer or farm-family to run the farm on a “milk-share” basis. He or she would have complete operational control over the dairy portion of the farm, with payment of a percentage of the milk check. The farm is 320 acres with 70-90 milking cows, all grass-fed. There is little machinery involved and the milking is seasonal. This offer includes a remodeled home with paid electricity and corn heating system. There are
additional organic and other high-value milk market opportunities for year-round income potential. The ideal farmer or family would be self-motivated, self-sufficient and farm or mechanically inclined. This opportunity should be viewed as a long-term project. Please send a letter of introduction and why your family would like to do this to WAPF/Midwest Farm Opportunity, PMB 106-380, 4200 Wisconsin Ave, NW, Washington, DC
