The cry's across social media are "People need to just buy meat from farmers and ranchers." "Skip the Industrial processor!" Obviously, I'm in favor of this. However, the reality is that so many people have become so reliant on the cheap meat that comes out of these industrial facilities that the volume they produce is amazing. Local processing doesn't have anywhere near the capacity necessary to fully fill the void.
The answer is consistent support. Support local farmers for as much of your food supply as possible. Vote with your dollars, and continue to vote with your dollars when the pandemic is in the rearview mirror. The industrial system only got as big as it is because consumers voted on cheap food.
