Ever since I was a 4-H and FFA member growing up, I have been proud of my family farm heritage. I grew up on a small dairy and grain farm (36 cows) in central Ohio that has been in our family since 1847 - making me the sixth generation. Click here for our full farm story.
When I went off to college for ag communications in the fall of 2001, one of my career goals was to serve as an advocate for the agriculture industry. In many ways, the agriculture industry is under attack, particularly the animal agriculture industry.
I hope that I can use my blog as a forum for discussion on important animal agriculture issues and also share my background as a farmwife and a farm mama in an effort to advocate for the industry that I care so deeply about.
This is what I'm referring to as AGvocacy.
