Happy Birthday, Small Flockers

birthday cake with 1 candle for 1st birthday of SFPFC (Small Flock Poultry Farmers of Canada)
Happy Birthday SFPFC !
Today is our first birthday since the formation of Small Flock Poultry Farmers of Canada.

It has been a lot of work over the past year.  I find it impossible to believe that it has been a full year.

So much has been accomplished. So little has been achieved.  Too much still remains to be done.

We've had 43,170 pageviews for this Blog so far, from all around the globe.

Visitors' Country of Origin
World map showing SFPFC's visitors from 2013/10/27 to 2014/2/28 for a
total of 6,371 pageviews from everywhere in the world. This map shows
only the last 14.75% of our Blog traffic, as there were 22,278 pageviews
(85.25% of our total) which occurred before starting this mapping.
It was hopeful and reassuring that Canadians are the ones with the greatest interest in this Blog.  We'd be in big trouble if all the world was interested in the Small Flocker's plight, but Canadians were not.

The United States is #2, which is understandable, for they are our neighbour, have many shared business interests, especially among the Supply Management Mafia.

Having China as #3 is most curious.  We welcome our Chinese visitors.  However, we understand that the business ties between Canada and China are generally weak.  For what reason is  China so interested in this Blog about Small Flockers, the Supply Management Mafia, and having affordable food for Canadians?

China has a lot of low cost chicken they'd like to sell to people in North America.  China is also interested in importing live birds from N. America, processing them into poultry cuts (eg. skinless, boneless breast meat, wings, legs, chicken strips, etc.), then shipping the meat back to consumers in N. America.

As a research department for the Chinese to quickly and easily learn about the issues and facts in the N. American poultry market, this is the best place to come.  Of course, they read carefully, but never let on that they're interested.  I can only image their private thoughts about the Canadian government and the crazy relationship that consumers have with the Supply Management Mafia.

I encourage one and all to leave us some birthday greetings in the comments below, as well as telling everybody what they like the best about this Blog, and what needs to be changed or improved for the better.

Again, Happy Birthday, Small Flockers everywhere.  This Blog wouldn't exist without you, our faithful readers.
