Host Gene Grant sits down with New Mexico Farm and Livestock Bureau President Mike White to talk about farm subsidies. A recent report by the U.S. Public Interest Research Group says poorly targeted subsidies are inadvertently contributing to the rise in obesity among Americans both young and old. Patrick Staib-Flores of the Agri-Cultura Network, a farmer-owned produce brokerage, joins the panel to talk about how small, local growers can compete with larger farming operations.
