Recap of Monday Night’s LATP October Meeting – just in case you missed it!
Mark Baker from Green Acres Farm drove in from Marion Michigan to describe his battle with the state. Mark explained it as a property rights fight. The DNR declared the type of hogs Mark Raises on his farm as “feral” and told him he must destroy all the animals or face very large fines essentially putting him out of the hog production business. Mark retired from the military 10 years ago and being former military was not about to go along to get along especially when it came to his family’s livelihood. Mark gave a very informative and moving presentation on his case. After 3 and ½ years of litigation Marks fight continues.
