I love great stories about advocating the agriculture industry. So here is one to share. I love farmers.org has set up "agvocating" days on university campuses across the United States. Today was their second WTF Day. Which stands for Where's the Food Without the Farmer. They get students who are interested in the agriculture industry to go out and advocate Ag and engage conversation with those that are not as well informed. It was very encouraging watching all the students tweet about how successful the day was on each campus.
It is a great concept and I think it would be great if all universities took the lead on this and joined the conversation of "agvocating". With the recent BSE (mad cow) issue in California it was amazing to see all the agvocates jump to action with informing the public of the facts and where they could go to find information if they had questions. It definitely shows how strong of an industry Agriculture is and that producers support each other and stick together. What a GREAT industry!
If anyone has questions about BSE I encourage you to go to BSEinfo.org to find all your information and facts. I will be blogging about this in much more detail coming up in my next blog post. But until then....Eat Beef, Drink Milk, Be Happy!!!
