How do we make sure animals are being farmed safely and who has the main oversight in these areas? You might try asking Dr. Flora-Josephine Hagen Liste, the District Veterinary Officer of Western Iceland in the Icelandic Food and Veterinary Authority. Host Katy Kieffer interviews Dr. Flora-Josephine about her work in Iceland overseeing farm conditions, and maintaining animal safety. How do the US and the EU differ in animal food production, and what can the USDA learn from Iceland’s practices? All this week on What Doesn’t Kill You. This program was brought to you by Cain Vineyard and Winery.
