Keep advocating for agriculture

Keep advocating for agriculture

By Jeremy Brown

We’ve all read the headlines condemning agriculture, and we should take those attacks personally. Because they affect each one of us—farmers and ranchers in Texas and across the nation.

We get angry and blame lack of knowledge. But we should channel that anger into productivity. To fuel our passion and share our stories.

That’s how we make progress, and it’s working. Consumer trust in agriculture is growing. We’re plowing the ground and planting seeds of information, assurance and transparency. That cultivates and strengthens relationships with our consumers.

C’mon, America! We can do better.

C’mon, America! We can do better.

By Gary Joiner

The presidential election has a lot of us worried. We’ve never had two presumptive nominees for president with such high negative ratings among the public.

Can the country rally behind the November winner? It’s a good question. Some aren’t so sure of the answer.

What’s losing in all of the election hype? Free trade. And it’s losing big. That’s not good for Texas farmers and ranchers. Or our country.

A note to consumers from Agriculture

A note to consumers from Agriculture

Hi,

I am Agriculture, and I get a day of my own on March 15.

I’d like to introduce myself for anyone who may not know who I am.

I’m responsible for food and fiber production. I not only supply these necessities for the citizens of the U.S., but I’m also shipped all over the world. I raise beef, pork, chicken, milk, vegetables, fruit, nuts and grains for humans and animals. I also grow cotton for clothes, timber to build things—like your house and many other products—that keep us healthy and strong, individually and as a nation.

Missing Justice Scalia

Missing Justice Scalia

By Gary Joiner

The sudden passing of Supreme Court of the U.S. Justice Antonin Scalia sent shockwaves through our country’s political and legal communities.

And through agriculture.

Much is at stake right now for America’s farmers and ranchers at the nation’s highest court. There are important challenges to the expansive reach of federal agencies. These court rulings will impact everyday agriculture.

One case involves the Chesapeake Bay. The American Farm Bureau Federation (AFBF) is challenging the EPA-led cleanup plan for the Bay. There’s no doubt opponents to the plan were counting on Scalia’s support in arguing the massive EPA blueprint infringes on states’ rights to determine land use.

Kicking off Sunday with agriculture

Kicking off Sunday with agriculture

By Gary Joiner

The biggest game of the year is just days away. About 115 million folks—myself included—will turn on the TV for Super Bowl 50.

The Carolina Panthers and Denver Broncos will battle it out on the field.

But Texas chicken growers will be among the big winners Sunday. Because the food of choice for many is chicken wings. And a lot of them. More than 1.6 billion chicken wing portions will fly through the fingers of football fans across the country. That’s about 14 wings per viewer.
