Yeah 3 places I'd pick up beef and frozen foods have closed for a minimum of 3 months, and 1 won't bother reopening..

My job is gone as a trucker, and other jobs.. Unless you are with a huge company like Bison, they can afford 50% cut in rates..

This was suppose to be 1 month, it's looking more like 3 to 6 months

Won't help, food plants are closing because on quality control..

Someone has hepatitis or covid-19 they close the plant..

But because covid-19 is so far out in the community, they are closing 1000's of food processing plants

It's not about having lots of food in your corner store NOW.

The stores also had lots of toilet paper, then people made a run on the stores.

When people hear about the plant closures on TV, which is now starting to hit the news down here, there will be more panic buying and shortages.

I'm just saying, buy it now before its to late, and there is nothing left..

If not, you'll be on a diet and lose some weight, which might be good for you.

Find a hopper and latch onto a custom seeding company. North America is the last hope for a good grain crop.

Global warming made it too damn cold.

Don't forget local farms folks....they have the meats.

Factory farms are the worst.

A large industrialised farm on which large numbers of livestock are raised indoors in conditions intended to maximise production at minimal cost.

Also a house of horrors possibly rendering antibiotics redundant.

If you are ever bored read this book by a GWB former speech writer.

Yep back to the olden days when small farms had big gardens, a couple of pigs, chickens, a couple of milk cows, cattle and grain production. Poached a couple of jumpers so they can sell excess produce, and livestock to pay the bills

Define "large". Is this a modern thing?

Good for you, don't forget about the Zombie deer” disease, also known as chronic wasting disease, which is transferable to humans.

You'll be like those Chinese making CWD jump human to human

You hope not, or that it doesn't spreads into your zone, then COVID-19 won't be an issue as your brain disolves from CWD
