America's Big Beef

Thomas Bjørkan

Just how much influence does Big Beef have in Cowtown?

On Monday's Up to Date, we’ll talk with Mike McGraw from The Kansas City Star and Peggy Lowe and Jeremy Bernfeld from Harvest Public Media, who have been covering the meat industry for a special series this week.

We'll also discuss the impact of big beef industrial operations on food safety and the environment, as well as the influence of corporations at agricultural colleges.

When I host Up To Date each morning at 9, my aim is to engage the community in conversations about the Kansas City area’s challenges, hopes and opportunities. I try to ask the questions that listeners want answered about the day’s most pressing issues and provide a place for residents to engage directly with newsmakers.
