Why should I care about Meat and Dairy?

A Listmania! list by Jackie "Auburn Meadow Farm" (Pittsburgh, PA USA)
The list author says: "Concern about our modern American food system has become a defining issue in my life. Preserving diversity in our food supply is critical to our future. Our lives have become so far removed from the source of food we're in danger of forgetting to preserve this basic cornerstone of American life."

Excellent guidance on sourcing meat, how to preserve and store and to make good use of the entire animal so nothing is wasted.
