Why Are Roosters On Weathervanes?

A weathervane with a rooster is a common sight and one of the oldest symbols adorning rooftops everywhere. But why a rooster? The answer may surprise you!

Temple Grandin: Big Meat Supply Chains Are Fragile

This is a message from Gore's Meats in the Shenandoah Valley! They are a long time supporter of the Loudoun County Fair and Loudoun 4H!

*if you share, please consider copying and pasting our message, b/c it will not share our message when you just hit share, it will only share the article*
While big processors are necessary to feed the masses, we’d love for you to remember us small processors here in the Shenandoah Valley after all this is over. There is a cost to keep it small and local, but sometimes that cost saves big time. Our local beef and hog farmers are working hard to keep the supply chain moving and we are processing at full steam. Check out this article by Dr. Temple Grandin, an influential advisor for the meat industry, as she explains why the little guy is important in keeping America fed when the big processors can’t:

“Big operations are extremely cost efficient. That’s why they’ve been built this way. The downside is the fragility of the supply chains, as Covid-19 proves. This pandemic is going to be a wakeup call and I expect many to become a lot more interested in more distributed local supply chains. Local production provides the opposite: it will always be more expensive because fixed costs such as labor, electricity, and water to process each pig will be higher. But a local supply chain is less prone to disruption. It also has a lower dependence on long-distance trucking. During the floods in Colorado, semi-trucks had a difficult time re-supplying many stores.

The bottom line is, there will always be a tradeoff. Big suppliers are low cost, efficient, and fragile. More numerous local producers are more expensive, but the entire supply is more robust. It will be less prone to disruption from floods, fires, electric power failures, storms or diseases like coronavirus or others in the future.”

When Temple Grandin first started her career as a designer of cattle handling systems in the early 1970s, many smaller packing plants existed. Grandin explains how today’s system became so concentrated and the reason the pandemic has overwhelmed meat supply chains.

Over the years it has grown to a large-scale community event aimed at educating the public about local agriculture and livestock while providing families with a week of affordable entertainment. The fair runs from July 23 – July 28.
