March 6, Tues. 7-9pm at St. Luke's HEC Topic - Glyphosate with Roger Weiss Roger is a longtime BGIG member and a retired agricultural professional who spent his life working with livestock and their feeds. This unique perspective has allowed Roger to understand more than the average person how what we feed our animals affects us. For years, there have been concerns about the use of glyphosate, though most of the rhetoric was dismissed as inconsequential concerns.
