The Governor of the mitten state slapped agriculture in the face with a recent "Meatout Day" proclamation. The proclamation reads in part:
Now, Therefore, be it Resolved, That I, Jennifer M. Granholm, governor of the state of Michigan, do hereby proclaim March 20, 2010, Michigan Meatout Day in Michigan. In observance of this day, I encourage the residents of this state to choose not to eat meat. Eating a healthy diet can be fun. Explore the different recipes that can be created by using fresh ingredients and by having a sense of adventure.
To add insult to injury March 20 just happens to be National Ag Day.
