Herald Food Editor Jeff Tiedeman always is on the lookout for new wild rice recipes such as the one that won the recent "Get Wild with Wild Rice" contest sponsored by the Minnesota Cultivated Wild Rice Council.
Parenting observers cite the cancellation as a prime example of so-called "helicopter parents" — those who hover over their children and are involved in every aspect of their children's lives — sports, school, and increasingly work — to ensure that they don't fail, even at an Easter egg hunt.
Gene Gregory, president and CEO of United Egg Producers, says yes, eggs are a commodity and large producers that sell to big customers such as Wal-Mart need to move across state lines without a patchwork of rules. UEP has made a negotiated deal over cage size with the Humane Society of the United States, for a bill that proponents plan to offer as an amendment to the farm bill.
The Baers operate a dozen farming or related entities in the region, either in egg, poultry or general farming, but are most often known for their egg business. Since the early 1980s, Amon has been on the UEP board. The UEP is a dues-paying organization, which is involved in political and policy work. Brother Amos is on the board of the American Egg Board, the check-off branch of the egg business, responsible for research and promotion.

It is part of a deal brokered by the United Egg Producers leaders and the Humane Society of the United States, ostensibly to prevent state-by-state laws that undermine the egg industry.
“Kill it,” Baer says of the proposed law.
A Minnesota food company said Friday it is recalling more than a million hard-cooked eggs distributed to 34 states, including Minnesota and North Dakota, after testing revealed some may be contaminated with listeria.
McDonald's has dropped a Minnesota-based egg supplier after an animal rights group released an undercover video of operations at the egg producer's farms in three states. The video by Mercy for Animals shows what it calls animal cruelty including a worker swinging a bird around by its feet.
Six people in the Twin Cities have been sickened with salmonella linked to organic eggs from an Owatonna, Minn., farm that sells to Lunds, Byerlys, Kowalski's and other markets and co-ops across the metro area.

Thousands of people likely were sickened by salmonella-contaminated eggs from two Iowa companies last summer, but lawyers said far fewer have the proof needed for a successful lawsuit and most cases filed will be settled out of court.
The owner of an Iowa egg farm at the heart of a massive recall is invited to testify this week before a congressional committee investigating what led to a salmonella outbreak that's sickened up to 1,500 people.
