Cattle at the Tennessee Junior Livestock Expo

Last week was a busy one for the cattle show folks here in Tennessee. We were in Murfreesboro, TN all week for the first week of the 41st annual Tennessee Junior Livestock Exposition (web, Facebook). Week 1 is all about the cattle. Week 2 is all about the sheep. It was a busy week for those […]

Saturday morning at Nashville Farmers Market

I grew up on a ranch where Saturday mornings were for chores and feeding the cattle. After 5 years of college, I still don’t know what to do with my Saturdays. My last trip to the Nashville Farmers Market was when my siblings came to visit on Spring Break. There wasn’t much in season then, […]

Nashville Farmers Market and Downtown

If you follow me on Facebook and/or Twitter, you’ll notice every time I go downtown in Nashville, there will be a photo posted of the AT&T building – affectionately characterized by some background Batman themed tunes. But that’s not the only thing that really catches my eye in the Music City. Back in August when […]

AgProud: Nashville Certified Organic Farmer

If there’s any group of farmers that relies on independent and local marketing in today’s food trade, it’s organic and local farmers. Today I feature Delvin Farms, an organic producer from Nashville, Tennessee. One of the great things about agriculture and food in this country is that we are able to afford food choices. Although […]

Getting Involved In Campus Food Policy

Food Policy …definitely not something I consider in my daily vocabulary, but a conversation we should all be a part of. In fact, the more I think about it, the more I should consider myself a ‘foodie’ (term used loosely). I spend every day concerned about my food. I think about where it comes, learning […]

Today my month-long series takes us to Philadelphia, Tennessee, visiting with 5th generation dairy farmer Ryan Bright. We’re celebrating the diversity of Agriculture by visiting with farmers, ranchers, and consumers from across the country and asking why they’re proud to be a part of Agriculture. Why are YOU Agriculture Proud? I was at the grocery […]

I Am Agriculture Proud

National Agriculture Day – What does it mean to you? My role in Agriculture has changed a bit since this time last year. In 2011 I was staring down the nose of some rank Brangus momma cows as I tagged their newborn calves. Day in and out I found myself in the middle of a […]

Cattlemen’s College: Web Roundup

Earlier this week I shared a few thoughts on the Cattlemen’s College held at last week’s Cattle Industry Convention in Nashville. There were so many great courses held that I had no way of attending them all. This is where social media comes in handy! I’ve rounded up a few links from across the web from […]

Cattlemen’s College: Cattle Feed Efficiency

Last week while at the Cattle Industry Convention in Nashville, Tennessee I had the opportunity to attend a series of classes designated to  inform and educate cattle producers and the associating community on the latest technologies in cattle production. The Cattlemen’s College covered a variety of topics ranging from Nutrition, Reproduction, and Ag Business Management. […]

The Many Reasons To Love Cattlemen’s Conventions

Where to begin? This has been a very fun week in Nashville and I still have one more day to go. A record 7,000+ cattlemen/women and community members have invaded the Opryland Resort. Every where you look there are advertisements from vendors, equipment sales, and breed association. Too many things to do. Too many people […]
