But not that any of us, even lawyers, give all that much thought to the complex regulatory landscape which underpins the production, marketing and distribution of food worldwide, not to mention a host of related issues which ultimately affect all of us — hence the fascination of this compendium of learned essays on the subject contained in this latest book from Edward Elgar. Part of Elgars Research Handbooks on the WTO series, this is a collection of learned articles and essays from a multi-disciplinary team of fourteen practitioners and academics worldwide on the WTO (World Trade Organisation) Agriculture Agreement. The book focuses on new issues linked to the international regulation of agricultural production and trade, many of which, according to the editors, have either been insufficiently covered by the rules of the Agreement on Agriculture (AoA), or not quite adequately covered by existing literature. These are pressing problems nonetheless, as they pertain directly to <b>…<b>

Webpage:thegoatdairy.org FaceBook:www.facebook.com While on a recent Caribbean adventure (Feb 2012) to Grenada with a few friends I discovered this really neat Goat Dairy Project by bumping into Christine Curry who started it in 2008. Both being interested in goats we immediately bonded and the next day I visited The Grenada Goat Dairy Project upon which I briefly interviewed her and shot this video. Her Goat Dairy Project is most interesting in how its helping rebuild a nation by teaching local farmers about raising goats and dairy farming processes …one goat at a time! Fun story! Please watch the video and leave comments. THE GRENADA GOAT DAIRY PROJECT: The goal of The Goat Dairy project is to establish a small and efficient agricultural demonstration "goat dairy" facility and produce high standardquality products for the local market. Demonstrationtraining workshops for the farmers will provide information on husbandry and health care for goats. In addition, training will be provided for farmers and other interested individuals in food safety, productionprocessing and packaging. A library of books regarding goat care and goat dairy information have been provided by The Grenada Project at Belmont Estate and all farmers are welcome to these resources. The small farm concept seeks to encourage and maintain the cultural dignity of the small, independent family farmer, rather than factory farm methods of high-volume production and mass marketing.

USAIDs Developing Agricultural Communities project has been teaching up-to-date horticulture techniques and marketing basics to farmers in the Aileu area since 2008 and has successfully helped them to gain skills needed to move from subsistence to market-driven agriculture. Participating farmers are now the main source of fresh produce for many restaurants and supermarkets in Dili. Through training and practice, farmers are increasingly becoming self-sufficient in both the production and sales of their products. This field-to-fork approach ensures farmers have a market for their produce, a timely source for quality seeds and inputs, and the knowledge of sustainable agriculture practices to maintain the health of the soil and environment.

Increasing market access is one of three Michigan Farm Bureau priorities outlined in Michigans Ag Plan: MAP to the Future. Learn more at www.michfb.comissuesMAP
