4. Weber County's looming land annexation could put dog boarding business at risk

5. For Utah food production, meat matters

Ranchers raise cattle on more than 6,000 farms throughout the state, bringing in nearly $361 million in 2013 and making them Utah’s top agricultural product, according to the Utah Department of Agriculture and Food. Utah’s livestock industry makes up around 70 percent of the cash flowing to farms. Turns out, beef, pork and poultry purchases are a great way to support local food production.
