WIBW Radio/KAN Podcast: Dr. Jayson Lusk, Department Head of Agricultural Economics at Purdue University

Dr. Jayson Lusk, Distinguished Professor and Head of the Department of Agricultural Economics at Purdue University, joined us on Wednesday’s Ag Issues program. Dr. Lusk discussed how unflattering images of agriculture are increasingly resulting in changes to food policy, based on animal welfare and the environment instead of human health and wellness.  Lusk also talked about the current and possible future impact of meat alternatives on the livestock industry, and how continued cultural, political and media attacks against the livestock industry could eventually hurt the the livestock industry.
