Stand Up for Your Industry!
The world is more connected than ever before. But with that connection, comes a barrage of information that is hard to sort through from fact and fiction. In agriculture, we're starting to see what that information can do to public trust, as more regulations & buyer demands are implemented, some of which aren't any safer, but merely a nod to misunderstood public pressure. Something can be done. Something needs to be done. Public outreach through social media, dinner conversations, grocery check-out line thank yous and more can all help. But you've got to step up and do it. Let's get you motivated to do that! For more information, visit Andrew's Facebook page.
