Consumers are concerned about the possibility of antibiotic residues in their meat, and it’s easy to understand why.
I had an interesting conversation with my mom recently about misconceptions in agriculture where I did just that – found common ground.
After a year or so of strictly not eating any meat, I decided that I would re-introduce my once-loved protein back into my diet for the same reason I let it go.
For a huge group of people, farms are always at least a city’s worth of distance away from their forks.
All I really have to offer is a passion to learn as much as I can about the industry and an equal desire to share what I have learned with you.
‘Big ag’ works to feed not only the farmers and ranchers but everyone else that is not in the agriculture industry, yet it sometimes gets a bad reputation
In regards to agriculture, social media provides an outlet for producers, farmers and ranchers to share what they are most passionate about.
Should we use animals to save human lives? I’m not talking about the big picture, philosophical debate. I’m talking about standing next to a loved one’s bedside in the hospital room and wondering if you’ll see them tomorrow, if they’ll get to celebrate another birthday, if he’ll be there to walk me down the aisle.
Some people believe that science has no place in agriculture and that growing crops and raising livestock should be as “simple” as it was in the old days.
I am ever so grateful that I had the opportunity to raise livestock for the fair. It provided me with so much laughter, new friends and a chance to grow in many different ways.
