I was surfing YouTube this week and found a page for Animal Agriculture Alliance: a great organization that is working to share the stories of animal agriculture and the people who are involved in producing your meat products. The AAA site led me to this video about a family cattle feeding operation in Nebraska. Anne Burkholder discusses her operation’s commitment to cattle nutrition and care.
Proper animal handing and care seems to be a hot new topic these days, but in reality it’s been a strong part of the livestock industries all along. Do you feel a personal responsibility for proper animal handing and care? What steps do businesses near you take to ensure proper care for their livestock? How do they show this to consumers?
Don’t forget to visit the AgProud YouTube Channel. Send a friend invite, I’m looking for more great web channels where others’ are sharing their Ag stories!
