The importance of kindness when agvocating
While it’s human nature to become upset when agriculture is “attacked” a little bit of kindness and compassion will go a long way.

It seems like every day there’s a new video or angry blog post that condemns farmers and their practices. While these are usually exaggerated and hold few truths, animal agriculture and dairy, in particular, are under constant assault. With less than 2 percent of our nation’s population actively involved in farming, it’s incredibly easy to paint such a small sector with a broad brush. These events have led to a national conversation about food, but farmers have been shushed, if not excluded from the conversation. It’s important now more than ever to share our stories with the American people so they can make informed decisions regarding the food they eat.
