Cooper Farms has pledged to match donations to the Alliance up to $5,000. “As producers of turkey, pork and eggs, we directly see the positive impact of the Alliance working to bridge the communication gap between farm and fork,” said Terry Wehrkamp, director of live production at Cooper Farms and chairperson of the Alliance board of directors. “Cooper Farms is proud to help the Alliance connect, engage and protect the future of agriculture by matching donations for the second year in a row.”

Cattle Empire will be participating in the Alliance’s Giving Tuesday campaign for the first time this year by matching donations from $5,001 to $10,000. Trista Brown Priest, chief strategy officer at Cattle Empire, LLC, said “The Alliance does a great deal of important work on behalf of the animal ag community, much of which is done behind the scenes. I appreciate the opportunities they have provided our team to connect with others in our industry and stay informed on the ever-changing issues facing U.S. farmers and ranchers. I would encourage all individuals with a vested interest in protecting the future of agriculture to personally give to the Alliance this year.”
