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.
Science was always my favorite subject in grade school and during my undergraduate career. My favorite class in college was biology and despite the stress level, I found chemistry to be fascinating and I loved the challenge. Was it always easy? Of course not – it was science, and its level of difficulty was one of the many reasons I ultimately decided to change my major from pre-vet to agricultural communication
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.
If you had cream in your coffee this morning or had meat for dinner last night, People for the Ethical Treatment of Animals (PETA) wants you to seek help for your “addiction.”
It’s important for everyone to discover the truth for themselves about farming and other businesses that involve animals.
Agriculture is a business, and just like any business, farmers need to proactively protect themselves from potential legal issues.
Pursuing a degree in agriculture might be intimidating to those who didn’t grow up on a farm or have production agriculture experience, but don’t let that deter you!
They wear two faces, two hats, one hidden video camera and have one goal: to put all farming operations that produce meat, milk and eggs out of business. Undercover animal rights activists gain employment on farms across the United States and Canada under false pretenses to help animal rights groups produce undercover video campaigns.
Many in the agricultural community seek protection from malicious animal rights activists through various laws that place penalties on individuals or organizations for performing different actions on farms.
I could dispute or complain about the stereotypes associated with the millennial generation, but I want to highlight how they can benefit agriculture.
